Theoklitos Polyeidis 1698-1759

Greek scholar, teacher, translator, priest and monk during the period of the Modern Greek Enlightenment.
His most notable work was the Oracles of Agathagelos (Οι χρησμοί του Αγαθάγγελου) which was written c. 1750, and had a huge appeal in the court of Catherine II in Petersburg and greatly enhanced philhellenism in the European cities he personally visited. The Oracles of Agathagelos was also later republished by Rigas Feraios, promoting the revolutionary spirit of the subjugated Greeks, because they prophesied the future liberation of the Greeks.
