Orthodox Theologians

Beautiful icon by Alevizakis depicting the three Holy Saints given the title of "Theologian" by the Orthodox Church: St. John the Evangelist, St. Gregory Patriarch of Constantinople, and St. Symeon the New Theologian (source)
"The one who prays is a theologian; the one who is a theologian, prays."
-Evagrios of Pontos
"The words of the saints are words of God and not of men."
 -St. Symeon the New Theologian, "The Discourses"
Through the prayers of our Holy Fathers, Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy on us and save us! Amen!
