About Nicolas Bulgaris

Nicolas Bulgaris lived at the beginning of the seventeenth century. His native land was Corcyra, among the Ionian islands of Greece, and he was raised by a faithful Christian family. After an extensive education, which led to his being named Doctor of Philosophy and Medicine, he turned his efforts to the study of the Church Fathers and the Sacred Scriptures. His other work included hymnography, writing an Italian account of the translation of the relics of St. Spyridon from Constantinople, and substantial contributions to the preservation of the theology and piety of the Orthodox Church.
