We find a clear reference to the Dormition (Koimisis) fast in a conversation of Saint Leo the Great from around the year 450 A.D. "The Church fasts are situated in the year in such a way that a special abstinence is prescribed for each time. Thus, for spring there is the spring fast--the Forty Days [Great Lent]; for summer there is the summer fast...[the Apostle's fast]; for autumn there is the autumn fast, in the seventh month [Dormition fast]; for winter there is the winter fast [Nativity fast]."Read More
