Name  Euphrosynus Pskov

Saint Euphrosynus of Pskov (c. 1386 – May 15, 1481) was a Russian monk and founder of a monastic community.

Euphrosynus was born as Eleazar in Videlebe, a village near Pskov. He entered the Snetogorsky monastery in Pskov, where he took the monastic name Euphrosynus. Around 1425 he began living in a hermitage, where he reported religious visions, and began attracting followers. In 1477, he built a church and instituted a monastic rule for the community, setting up his follower Ignatius as hegumenos. He died a few years later, in 1481.
