This Saint took up the monastic life from his youth in the Monastery of Studium,
where he became a disciple of Saint Theodore the Studite. Later he
became bishop and suffered many afflictions and torments at the hands
of the Iconoclasts. Saint Theodore composed a homily in honour of this
Saint James (PG 99, 1353-1356).
Apolytikion in the Fourth Tone:
O God of our Fathers, ever dealing with us according to Thy gentleness: take
not Thy mercy from us, but by their entreaties guide our life in peace.
