Sainted Savva, Archbishop of Surozh
Commemorated on April 2
Sainted Savva, Archbishop of Surozh (now the city of Sudak), lived in the Crimea (early XII Century). What is known about him is preserved as marginalia of the Greek Menaion written in the XII Century. At 5 versts from the former city of Surozh there exists a mountain, called Ai-Savva (Saint Savva), where there were once preserved the remains of a church and cave, in which apparently, the saint died and was buried. In the year 1872 was found an icon of Saint Savva of Surozh.
