The Three Hierarchs

The Three Hierarchs remained in the history if the Orthodox Church as being celebrated at the same time at the beginning of the calendar year on the 30th of January: St. Basil of Caesarea (the 1st of January), St. Gregory of Nazianzus (25th of January) and St. John Chrysostom (the 13th of November).

It is said that in the XI-th century, because of an older argument regarding the supremacy of one versus the other two saints. God granted that the three hierarchs should appear in the visions of saint John of Mauropous in 1804. They said to him that they are equal before God: “There’s no difference, no divide between us”.

This is why saint John Mauropous chose the 30th of January as a common celebration day ending this way the disputes in the empire.


The icon on glass is painted in oil, with golden foil and handmade patinated frame which was exposed to a process that gives it an authentic antique look.
