St. John Chrysostom (circa 349–407) was an Archbishop of Constantinople and an important Early Church Father known for his eloquence in both preaching and public speaking during his lifetime, as well as his strong denunciation of abuse of authority by both ecclesiastical and political leaders. The Orthodox and Eastern Catholic Churches honor him as a saint and count him among the Three Holy Hierarchs, together with Basil the Great and Gregory Nazianzus. He was given the title chrysostomos, meaning "golden mouthed."

Today, however, he he is mostly remembered for his writing, including Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom. Among his extant exegetical works are sixty-seven homilies on Genesis, fifty-nine on the Psalms, ninety on the Gospel of Matthew, eighty-eight on the Gospel of John, and fifty-five on the Acts of the Apostles. The sermons were written down by the audience and subsequently circulated, revealing a style that tended to be direct and greatly personal, but was also formed by the rhetorical conventions of his time and place.
