Cavasilas, Nikolaos

(c. 1320–71)
   Theologian and Mystic.
   Cavasilas was born in Thessalonica and, as a young man, was involved in politics, but little is known of his later life. He is remembered for his two treatises, Life in Christ and The Exposition of the Divine Liturgy. These volumes are generally regarded as classics of Eastern sacramental theology.
