Overview

Archbishop of Constantinople and influential early Church Father John Chrysostom was known for his eloquent preaching.

Direct and personal in style, his teaching often targeted Christian involvement in the materialism and paganism surrounding the early church.

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.
