(alt zossima). Monk in Fyodor Dostoevsky's masterwork The Brothers Karamazov. Zosima was Dostoevsky's attempt to "compel people to admit that a pure ideal Christianity is not an abstraction, but a vivid reality, possibly near at hand, and. that Christianity is the sole refuge of the Russian land from all its evils."(Gibson, Alexander Boyce. The Religion of Dostoevsky. Philadelphia: The Westminster Press, 1973. 169.) Zosima found evidence of God in the witness of "active love", and sought to propagate the idea.

Also the pseudonym of a relatively unkown but friendly hacker. (not cracker).
