Saint John Damascene was one of the great poets of the Eastern Church. He had a very complicated life being a Father at the time of the Muslim government who could attack all those who differed from the religion of the country.
He is not known for writing obas or literary works but rather for organizing and ordering what his former predecessors had already written. He led a different life than any saint, he worked as a tax collector like his father and was known for his humility that he possessed.
Saint Damascene decided to quit his job and dedicate himself to being a Monk in Saint Sabas where he dedicated his life to the Lord, and composed poems, and writing theologies.
