 Our Description

Foreword by Frederica Mathewes-Green

Now available in a popular contemporary English translation for the first time, important reflections of St. John Chrysostom on I Corinthians, Chapter 13.

One of the most important passages in the Scriptures, I Corinthians 13 is often read and rarely followed. Medieval theologian, John Chrysostom, was called the “golden-mouthed” one, for the eloquence of his preaching. His reputation extended from his native East to the Christian West, and he is remembered today as a Church Father for the entire Church.

St. John Chrysostom

Feast Day:
Roman Rite Calendar - 09/13


Patron Of: Lecturers, Orators, Preachers, Against Epilepsy, Constantinople, Istanbul, Speakers

Also known as
    Greatest of the Greek Fathers
    Golden-Mouth
    Giovanni Crisostomo

Profile
    John's father died when he was young, and he was raised by a very pius mother. Well educated; studied rhetoric under Libanius, one of the most famous orators of his day. Monk. Preacher and priest for a dozen years in Syria. While there he developed a stomach ailment that troubled him the rest of his life.

    It was for his sermons that John earned the title "Chrysostom" (golden mouthed). They were always on point, they explained the Scriptures with clarity, and they sometimes went on for hours. Made a reluctant bishop of Constantinople in 398, a move that involved him in imperial politics. Criticized the rich for not sharing their wealth, fought to reform the clergy, prevented the sale of ecclesiastical offices, called for fidelity in marriage, encouraged practices of justice and charity.

    Archbishop and Patriarch of Constantinople. Revised the Greek Liturgy. Greek Father of the Church. Proclaimed Doctor of the Church in 451.

    John's sermons caused nobles and bishops to work to remove him from his diocese; twice exiled from his diocese. Banished to Pythius, and died on the way.

Born
    c.347 at Antioch, Asia Minor

Died
    407
