Maximos Kausokalyves, the fourteenth century Athonite monk, is celebrated as one of the most important Saints related to the Hesychast movement in Byzantium. Born in 1270/80, he spent most of his life on Mount Athos as an ascete in huts, which he used to burn before he moved from one place to another, thus the name, Kausokalyves. Through the collation of his life, composed by four of St Maximo’s contemporaries, we get very important information about his life and acts, during a very critical period marked by political and doctrinal conflicts.
