Not a Roman Catholic saint[edit]

Sergius may be revered amongst some Byzantine or Eastern Catholics. He is not, however, revered in the Roman Church. Neither of his feast days occurs either in the General Roman Calendar or in the Roman Martyrology. Just because you can point to some site purporting to show "Catholic" saints means little. Please, correct this! Mwidunn (talk) 14:40, 5 March 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sergius is listed in the 2004 version of the Roman Martyrology.[1] CosmicLycanroc (talk) 21:25, 31 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Could Saint Sergius be referring to Sergii Radonezhsky?

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


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.


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)Reply[reply]

Yet, we do refer in English to Peter Tchaikovsky, don't we? Mwidunn (talk) 14:43, 5 March 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

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 (talk) 15:52, 1 March 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
