FEAST OF THE THREE HOLY HIERARCHS

In the name of the Christian community, the dedicated and devoted Fathers of the Church taught and defended the faith in the True God, Who blessed them and their endeavors. Among such personalities of the Church of Christ are the three outstanding theologians and Fathers: Basil the Great, Gregory the Theologian and John Chrysostom. These renowned and eminent Fathers are recognized as the Three Hierarchs and Doctors of the Church of Christ. They are acknowledged as such by the One Undivided Ecumenical Church, East and West, which designated a feast day by honoring the Three Hierarchs as Doctors of the Saints. This feast day dates back to the tenth century, although each Father had his own feast day before the tenth century. The feast day of the Three Hierarchs was arrived at to end the debate who was greater of the three. With the celebration of the Three Hierarchs with equal status, the lengthy debate and controversy came to an end. The feast day of the Three Hierarchs, Basil, Gregory and Chrysostom, is celebrated on January 30.
