Cornelius

KORNELIUS

Yek ji "birayên kevnar" ê navdar ê Pachomian e koinonia (civatî). Ew ji koma duyemîn a şagirtan bû ku dora 324-an hatin PACHOMIUS (Lefort, Sahidic-Bohairic 24; Halkin, 1982, Yewnanî, 1, 26), û ew ji hêla bavê wî ve wekî Dêra Keşîşxaneya Tmoushons hate tayîn kirin piştî ku ew hat pêşwazî kirin koinonia (Lefort, Sahidic- Bohairic 51.59; Halkin, Yewnanî, 1, 54.61).

Ew di nav rihspiyan de dema destnîşankirina Theodorus wekî bavê Tabennese di 336-337-an de tê gotin (Halkin, Yewnanî, 1, 79), û hem jî di dema ceribandina mezin de dora 344 (Halkin, Yewnanî, 1, 106). He died in 346 during the same plague that carried away Pachomius and many others among the early brothers (Lefort, Sahidic-Bohairic 119; Halkin, Greek, recension 1, 114).

Li gorî şahidê Pachomius (Lefort, Sahidic-Bohairic 91; Halkin, Yewnanî, 1, 111), Cornelius struggled to acquire all the fruits of the Holy Spirit and had therefore purified his heart to the point of not having any distraction during communal prayer. He was also a man of wisdom capable of answering the questions of some philosophers from ASHMUN (Lefort, Sahidic-Bohairic 55; Halkin, Greek, recension 1, 82). With SOUROUS, he was one of the two persons with whom Pachomius exchanged letters in a cryptic language.
