Cel între sfinți părintele nostru Teognost Grecul a fost mitropolit al Kievului, Moscovei și întregii Rusii. A urmat sfântului Petru al Moscovei (prăznuit la 25 august și 21 decembrie) în scaunul de mitropolit, păstorind între anii 1327 și 1353. It was through his influence that the Grand Prince Simeon sent money to the Byzantine Emperor John Cantacuzene for repairs to the Great Church of Hagia Sophia. Pomenirea lui în Biserica Ortodoxă se face la 14 martie.

Viața

Saint Theognostus was born in Constantinopol and later in his life chose Moscow as his primary place of dwelling.

It was his lot to reconcile Novgorod with the prince of Moscow in times of their mutual animosity. St. Theognostus managed to save all of the Russian church's valuables and gave up all his personal property after he had refused to collect tribute from the churches to give to the Mongols. He was tortured by the Tatars for his audacity but never gave in. It was the khan who finally gave up and confirmed the existing privileges of the Church. After a fire swept through Moscow, Theognostus started to restore the churches despite the fact that he had had nothing left in his possession.

In 1353, feeling that his days were numbered, Theognostus appointed Alexis (Bishop of Vladimir) his successor.

Theognostus was buried in the Cathedral of the Dormition in Moscow. He was canonized by the Russian Orthodox Church in the 19th century.
