Palestinian bishop and poet

Cosmas was adopted by the father of St. John of Damascus, and educated by a monk also named Cosmas. Cosmas the younger became Bishop of Maļuma in 735. He is remembered for his poetry in honor of the great Christian feasts, some of which has been incorporated into the liturgies of the Eastern Orthodox churches.
