Geron Paisios

   The monk Paisios Agioreitis (Arsenios Eznepidis, July 25, 1924-12 July 1994) was a Greek monk who lived during the 20th century.

He was born in Farasa, Cappadocia, Asia Minor, on July 25, 1924. His father's name was Prodromos and he was the president of the Farasas, while his mother was called Eulambia. The Elder still had 8 brothers. On August 7, 1924, a week before the Farasites left for Greece, the Elder was baptized by Saint Arsenios of Cappadocia, who insisted and gave him his own name "to leave a monk at his feet", as he had characteristically said .

Elder Paisios wrote books, which have been published by the Holy Hermitage "Evangelistis Ioannis o Theologos" (Souroti, Thessaloniki).

- Saint Arsenios the Cappadocian (1991)

- Geron Chatzi-Georgis Athonitis, 1809-1886 (1986)

- Holy Fathers and Mount Athos (1993)

The Rev. Metropolitan of Nafpaktos Mr. Hierotheos and the Rev. Metropolitan of Marathon Mr. Meliton, have proposed his classification in the diptychs of the Orthodox Church as a Saint.
