St. PACHOMIUS

Christian Saint

Also known as Abba Pachomius, Pachome, Pachomius The Great

Egyptian Founder of Christian Cenobitic Monasticism

His rule book for monks is a monastic must. His idea of memorizing liturgy at meal times was a great success.

His innovation put paid to all those awkward gaps between ‘pass the salt’ and ‘for Heaven’s sake stop slurping’. Unless you were a silent order, in which case the gap was even larger.
