Overview

John Chrysostom (c. AD 347–407) was the archbishop of Constantinople and an early church father. He is honored as a saint in the Orthodox, Eastern, and Roman Catholic churches, and is also a Doctor of the Church. A great orator, his homilies were not written, but spoken to the people, often transcribed by listeners for wider distribution. His style was direct and personal, often targeting Christian involvement in the materialism and paganism surrounding the early church. His homilies contain practical examples and analogies meant to reach laypeople, As well as more complex theological substance that helped to formulate Christian thinking as we know it today. John Chrysostom has been praised as one of the greatest preachers in the early church, and his homilies and discourses remain a lasting legacy for all Christians.
