Bryn Mawr Classical Review reviews a new collection of lives of St. Daniel of Sketis (Lower Egypt, sixth century). “Daniel is portrayed in these stories as one who has a supernatural capacity to discern secret holiness, to recognize and identify those who are called kruptoi douloi, or secret servants. A common phrase running through these stories is that ‘God knows how many secret servants he has.’”
