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.
