It is known that Hieromartyr Timothy was a bishop of the city of Prussia and lived during the reign of Tsar Julian. For good deeds and fidelity to God, he received the gift of clairvoyance and miracles. Even before Timothy received the rank of bishop, he fought desperately against heresy and converted many pagans to Christ. After gaining a responsible position, he wisely managed his flock.

The emperor, seeing the successes of the saint, imprisoned him, where he tortured him for a long time and forced him to renounce his faith. Having been refused, he ordered to cut off Timothy’s head.
