During the eleventh century, disputes raged in Constantinople about which of the three [[ hierarch]] s was the greatest. By the will of God, the three hierarchs appeared to St. [[ John Mauropous]] ('Black- foot'), Bishop of Euchaita ([[ June 14]] or [[ October 5]]), in the year 1084, and said that they were equal before God: "There are no divisions among us, and no opposition to one another." St. John chose January 30 for their Feast, thus peacefully ending the controversy.<!-- St. John Mauropous is credited with the composition of both the '' [[Canon]] to the Most Sweet [[Jesus]]'' and the ''Canon to the Guardian [[Angel]]''. ---> ==hymns==[[ Troparion]] (Tone 1) :Let us who love their words gather together :And honor with hymns the three great torch-bearers of the triune Godhead: :Basil the Great, Gregory the Theologian and John Chrysostom. :These men have enlightened the world with the rays of their divine doctrines. :They are sweetly-flowing rivers of wisdom filling all creation with springs of heavenly knowledge. :Ceaselessly they intercede for us before the Holy Trinity!
