Encyclopedia > Tikhon of Zadonsk

Saint Tikhon of Zadonsk (1724 - 1783) was born in the village of Korotsk, in the Novgorod region, Russia. He received the monastic habit at the age of thirty-four. He was later consecrated Bishop of Voronezh. He served as bishop for a little under seven years and retired to the monastery of Zadonsk and lived there until he died. His relics were kept there and due to the reports of the many miracles that occurred near his relic he was made a saint by the Russian Orthodox Church in 1861. His feast day is celebrated on August 26 (August 13, Julian calendar).
