Religious Figure
    (January 17, 251-March 56, 131)
    Born near Heraclea, Egypt
    Resided in the Sahara Desert
    Also known as St. Anthony of Egypt, St. Anthony of the Desert, St. Anthony Abbot, St. Anthony the Anchorite and ‘the Father of All Monks’
    Practiced asceticism (religious abstinence from worldly pleasures)
    He was a crazy old hermit.
    He lived alone in a hut in the desert for 20 years.
    When people came to see if he was still alive, he would lecture them through the wall.
    He said he was tortured by demons.
    He is often confused with the more famous St. Anthony of Padua.
    He claimed he sat in a small room by himself for 20 years and never masturbated (and he also has a bridge he’d like to sell you).
    He sold all his possessions and gave the money to charity.
    He had a cult following, with copycat hermits setting up all over the Sahara in tribute.
    People liked him so much, they would throw food through his windows.
    After 20 years of solitude, he went back to his normal life as if nothing had happened.
    He lived to 105.
    His story inspired Salvador Dalí, Hieronymous Bosch and other artists who like drawing demons.
