Sergii[edit]

Could Saint Sergius be referring to Sergii Radonezhsky?

No way. Mikkalai 03:22, 7 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Fame[edit]

Some mention of his fame with regards to Hesychasm should be made.

(source) Sergius gained fame as an exponent of an interior, ascetic style of monastic life, what the Byzantine spiritual masters termed 'hesychasm', the silent prayer of the heart of the recluse.

Name[edit]

I think the english translation of his original name would be "Bartholomew".[1] -- Sy / (talk) 03:13, 7 Feb 2005 (UTC)

    • One should be careful witth translations of names. We don't call Pierre Curie Peter, do we? Anyway, I added the mentioning of Bart into the article, thanks. Mikkalai 03:27, 7 Feb 2005 (UTC)
Pierre Curie is not known in English academic work as "Peter"; however, most Enlgish-language works refer to the subject of this page as "Sergius of Radonezh". MishaPan 15:12, 18 July 2007 (UTC)

Sergius of Radonezh image orientation correction[edit]

The icon of Sergius of Radonezh is inverted left to right... note 1) the text of the manuscript he is holding, 2) the direction of the lower cross bar of the crosses on his robes, and the use of the "left" hand to make the sign the blessing. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.132.28.80 (talk) 15:52, 1 March 2008 (UTC)
