Abbot of Ksilourgou Skete on Mt. Athos, Hieromonk Martinian (Sinyagaev) reposed early in the morning on Tuesday reports Russian Athos.

Ksilourgou Skete is a dependency of the Russian St. Panteleimon’s Monastery on Mt. Athos. The ancient Ksilourgou Monastery was reconstituted as a skete by Bulgarian monks in the 19th century and is also known as the Bogoroditsa (Theotokos) Skete today.

Fr. Martinian (in the world Michael Nikolaievich Sinyagaev) was born November 18, 1946 in the city of Bugulma in the Tatar Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic. He was tonsured as a monk in the Pskov Caves Monastery on February 2, 1968, and was ordained there on May 25, 1973.

He arrived to Mt. Athos and entered St. Panteleimon’s Monastery on August 4, 1976. He reposed in the morning of December 5 in a Thessaloniki hospital. His body was delivered to the Holy Mountain that evening.

He thus spent more than 40 years of his 71 years of life on the Holy Mountain.

According to Athonite tradition, his funeral and burial took place in the evening of the same day, at the Krumitsa Skete, also a dependency of St. Panteleimon’s Monastery.

May his memory be eternal!
