Sputnik Georgia tells who this saint was and why he is mentioned in the church calendar.

Defender of Orthodoxy

According to the church calendar, on June 12, Isaac of Dalmatia, the founder of the Dalmatian monastery and a staunch defender of Orthodoxy, is commemorated.

Isaac lived in the 4th century. He was a hermit in the desert. Learning that the emperor Valens patronizes the Arian doctrine, whose adherents believed that the Savior was not consubstantial with God the Father, and introduced him to the state, the monk went to Constantinople to dissuade the emperor from heresy destroying Christianity.

The monk predicted to the emperor, who was going on a campaign, that if he did not give up the heresy, he would not return alive from this campaign. Valens ordered to keep Isaac in custody until his return. The prediction came true – the emperor died, and the monk began to be revered as a prophet.

Theodosius the Great, succeeding Valens on the throne, received Isaac with honor and expelled the Arians. He persuaded the monk to found a monastery near Constantinople. Subsequently, the monastery began to be called the Dalmatian monastery, after the name of the disciple of the saint – Dalmatia. He died in 383.

According to the church calendar, the defender of Orthodoxy is also commemorated on April 4 and August 16.


According to the church calendar, the name day is celebrated on June 12 by Vasily, Guidon, Hilarion, Isaac, Nikanor and Yakov.
