St. Sergiy Radonezhskiy (about 1321-91) religious and political figure of the 14th century, founder of the Troitse-Sergievsky monastery, before taking monastery vows he was called Bartholomew. He was spiritual instructor of the Prince Dmitry Donskoy, and enthusiastic supporter of the Prince’s policy against Tatar-Mongolian occupation. The legend about his youth says that the Bartholomew, a pious boy, could not learn reading and writing, though he wished it with all his heart. He prayed for being helped. Once, looking after cattle, he met a divine hermit, and asked him to help him in learning. His plead was heard. Sergiy Radonezhsky was canonized by the Russian Orthodox Church.
