St. Constantine of Hydra


Constantine was born on Hydra in the eighteenth century and at the age of eight went to Rhodes, where he became a Muslim. He later reverted to the Orthodox faith and became a monk in the Monastery of Iviron on Mount Athos. He returned to Rhodes to preach the Word of God, and the Turkish authorities imprisoned him for apostasy. He was hanged on 14 November 1800.
