    Sergei A. Ivanov, in his “Holy Fools in Byzantium and Beyond”, gives an extract of the vita of Symeon the New Theologian, written in the eleventh century, and in which we find descriptions of characters, acting purposefully in the manner of holy fools:
    “The first such character is Symeon the Pious, a monk of the Stoudios monastery. This is what the vita tells us about him:
    ‘He had no more feelings with regard to bodies around him that a corpse as for the dead, yet he would pretend to be aroused… hoping thereby to conceal the treasure of his impassivity … and also surreptitiously to save perhaps only a few – though all if possible – of those who were at the bottom, using this bait to draw them up from the depths of ruin.”

    Sergey A. Ivanov, Holy Fools in Byzantium and Beyond, Translated by Simon Franklin, Oxford University Press, 2006, p. 174
