John Chrystostom
Christianity
and history
John Chrystostom, (344/345-407): around 373 he became a hermit but was made a deacon in Antioch in 381 and a priest in 386. His brilliant preaching led to his becoming Bishop of Constantinople in 398 but his criticism of the morals of the Imperial Court led to his banishment in 404 and his eventual death. His sermons and Biblical exegesis had a profound affect on Calvin and other Protestant Reformers.
