  Simeon Stylites - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Simeon Stylites or Symeon the Stylite (circa 388 - 459), Christian saint, was born at Sisan in northern Syria.
Simeon discovered a pillar which had survived amongst ruins, formed a small platform at the top, and upon this determined to live out his life.
Simeon became so influential that a church delegation was sent to him to demand that he descend from his pillar as a sign of submission.

 Simeon I of Bulgaria - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Tsar Simeon the Great (Bulgarian: Цар Симеон Велики, Tsar Simeon Veliki) (ruled 893 – May 27, 927) was 27 when he took the throne of Bulgaria from his brother Vladimir, the son of Prince Boris, who was deposed and blinded by his own father after his attempt to return Bulgaria to paganism.
Having become the most powerful monarch in eastern Europe, Simeon assumed the style of "Emperor and Autocrat of all the Bulgars and Greeks", a title which Pope Formosus was quick to recognize.
Simeon lured the Serbian king and the Pecheneg chief to his side, away from an attempted alliance with the Byzantines.

Simeon, ambitious to conquer a vast empire, made duties levied on Bulgarian trade a pretext for attacking the Byzantine emperor Leo VI.
Simeon defeated Leo but was defeated in turn by Leo's allies, the Magyars under Arpad.
He conquered most of Serbia and took (925) the title czar of the Bulgars and autocrat of the Greeks, which was approved (926) by Pope John X. Denying the supremacy of the patriarch at Constantinople, he raised the archbishop of Bulgaria to the rank of patriarch.

 Brothers, We Must Not Mind a Little Suffering: Meditation on the Life of Charles Simeon   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Simeon had often walked by the church, he tells us, and said to himself, "How should I rejoice if God were to give me that church, that I might preach the Gospel there and be a herald for Him in the University" (Moule, 37).
Joseph Gurney saw the same thing in Simeon for years and wrote, that in spite of Simeon's private weeping, "it was one of his grand principles of action, to endeavor at all times to honor his Master by maintaining a cheerful happy demeanor in the presence of his friends" (Moule, 157).
Simeon was utterly unlike most of us today who think that we should get rid once and for all of feelings of vileness and unworthiness as soon as we can.

 Medieval Sourcebook: Evagrius: St. Simeon Stylites from Ecclesiastical History, I.13
Simeon prolonged his endurance of this mode of life through fifty-six years; nine of which he spent in the first monastery where he was instructed in divine knowledge, and forty-seven in the "Mandra" as it was called; namely, ten in a certain nook; on shorter columns, seven; and thirty upon one of forty cubits.
After his departure [from this life] his holy body was conveyed to Antioch, escorted by the garrison, and a great concourse guarding the venerable body, lest the inhabitants of the neighboring cities should gather and carry it off.
It is alleged that the devil having afflicted him with an ulcer in his thigh as reward for a little self-righteousness, Simeon, as penance, never touched the afflicted leg upon the pillar again, and stood for the remaining year of his life upon one leg.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Simeon
In Gen., xxxiv, Simeon appears with his full brother Levi as the avenger of their sister Dina who had been humiliated by Hemor a prince of the Sichemites.
By a strange subterfuge all the men of the latter tribe are rendered helpless and are slaughtered by the two irate brothers who then, together with the other sons of the patriarch, plunder the city.
There is a striking contrast between this earlier appreciation of the treacherous and bloody deed and that of the writers of post-Exilic Judaism, who have only words of praise for the action of the two brothers, and even consider them as incited to it by Divine inspiration (see Judith, ix, 2, 3).

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Holy Simeon
He was one of the pious Jews who were waiting for the "consolation of Israel" and, though advanced in years, he had received a premonition from the Holy Ghost, Who was in him, that he would not die before he had seen the expected Messias.
As in the case of other personages mentioned in the New Testament, the name of Simeon has been connected with untrustworthy legends, viz., that he was a rabbi, the son of Hillel and the father of Gamaliel mentioned in Acts, v, 34.
With like reserve may we look upon the legend of the two sons of Simeon, Charinus, and Leucius, as set forth in the apocryphal gospel of Nicodemus.
