Saint Paul the Hermit, also called Paul of Thebes, a well educated Egyptian, was the first Christian hermit, embracing the life of solitude and penance. He fled to the desert to circumvent the Christian persecution of Decius and from plans of his brother to report him to authorities to gain control of his property. Paul lived as a vegetarian, using the leaves of a Palm tree for clothing. It’s said that a raven supplied him with bread. St. Anthony of Egypt was good friends with him and buried him, wrapped in a cloak given by St. Athanasius. St. Jerome wrote his biography.
