Concerning the Relics of St. Nicholas, Archbishop of Myra

   
Antonios Markou
Translated from the Greek by Patrick G. Barker
Prologue by Bishop Chrysostomos of Etna

Number XIII of Monographic Supplement Series

“For some years I have regarded the presence of the sacred Relics of St. Nicholas, Archbishop of Myra in Lycia, in the Papist church in Bari, Italy, as somewhat curious, or rather somewhat incongruous, particularly in our age, when the Papists do not include the name of St. Nicholas among the official Saints of their calendar. They regard the person and the wonderful life of the Saint as a ‘pious’ myth. [...]Mr. Markou informs us that an historical inaccuracy can be observed among the literati. These scholars believe that the sacred Relics of St. Nicholas were transferred from Myra in Lycia to Bari at the express wish of St. Nicholas, ‘...so that the Relics of such a Saint might not remain without honor and glory,’ as St. Nicodemos the Hagiorite says. It should, however, be made clear that St. Nicodemos based himself on hagiographic information from the Slavonic Synaxaria, with their Western roots. The pious author of the present work demonstrates that, in fact, the sacred Relics of St. Nicholas ‘were stolen [from Myra] by Italian seafarers.’”
