Teoktysta – matka św. Teodora Studyty
Theoktiste – The Mother of St. Theodore The Studite
Languages of publication
The aim of the article is to discuss Theoktiste’s curriculum vitae. This does not mean, however, that focusing primarily on her person, one can skip all the content relating to her son, St. Theodore. What weighs in favour of it, is the close ties between them that deepened in the course of mutual experiences – both in the family house in Constantinopole and later, when both led religious life. In addition, their lives influenced each other to such an extent, that it would be difficult to understand important decisions taken by Theodore, especially in his youth, without the prior influence of his mother.
