Theophanes, abbot

  Abbot of Vatopediou Monastery on Mount Athos around 1360, he is mentioned in written sources after 1381 as the metropolitan of Peritheorion. He knew personally the monk/saint Maximos Kafsokalyvis, who was celebrated for his gift of prophecy and had counselled many patriarchs and emperors. Theophanes, whom Kafsokalyvis had predicted would become metropolitan of Morachrides in Thrace, co-authored one of the four lives of the saint which includes one of his apologias against the Latins.
