Venerable Luke the Abbot, Near Constantinople

St Luke of Prusa was the third holy igumen at the monastery of the Savior, in Batheos Ryakos (near Triglia, Lykaonia). He died in peace.

The first holy igumen was St Basil, who died at the beginning of the ninth century (July 1 on the Greek calendar); the second holy igumen was St Ignatius (September 27).

The monastery was famed for the strictness of the ascetic life of its residents. St Luke died at the end of the tenth century.
