Peter's life is recorded by Theodoret of Cyrrhus whose own family was touched by the saint's gifts of healing.
Saint Peter the Hermit left his home at a very early age and lived as a wandering monk for many years travelling extensively throughout the middle-east. Eventually he settled near Antioch where he lived a very strict asceticism and became known for his holiness.
