Overview

Known for his eloquent preaching and public speaking, John Chrysostom was the archbishop of Constantinople and an influential early Church Father. He is recognized as a saint in the Orthodox and Catholic Churches and is one of the Three Holy Hierarchs along with Basil the Great and Gregory Nazianzus. Given to extreme asceticism, he lived as a hermit for two years before poor health forced him to return to Antioch, where he was ordained as a deacon—and later a priest—of the church at Antioch. His insightful expositions and discourses on the Bible made him a popular orator in the Church, and he was appointed archbishop of Constantinople in 397.

About John Chrysostom

John Chrysostom (c. 347–407) was the archbishop of Constantinople and an influential Early Church Father. He was known for his oratorical skills and was given the epithet Chrysostom, or “golden-mouthed,” after his death. His homilies consistently emphasize care for the poor. He is one of the Three Holy Hierarchs, along with Basil the Great and Gregory Nazianzus. Both the Orthodox and Catholic churches recognize him as a saint and a doctor of the Church.
