Three Holy Hierarchs - Basil the Great, Gregory the Theologian and John Chrysostom.
Monday, 27 Jan 2014 - Historical Museum
In January the Eastern Christianity honours three saints, who are symbols of divine knowledge and worldly wisdom - St.Basil the Great and St. John Chrysostom and St. Gregory the Theologian. While each of them has a separate holy-day, in 1084 it was decided that the three saints shall be honoured in a common feast day in order to show their great importance to the theological science. Nowadays, by decision of the Bulgarian Orthodox Church, the day of the Three Holy Hierarchs has been celebrated since the 30s of the twentieth century as patronal day of religious schools, institutes and theological faculties, and these great hierarchs as celestial and spiritual patrons of all Orthodox spiritual schools.

When referring to Basil the Great, Gregory the Theologian and John Chrysostom, the words used to describe them are divine, perfect, inimitable convincing in their speech, skilled interpreters of scriptures with unsurpassed elegance of expression. These holy men surpass all words and deeds, in no way inferior to the angels, most humane, understanding the weakness of human nature. When we look at the written heritage of these Three Wise Men, we will be convinced of the truth of these claims.
Their infinite wisdom is timeless, not only in the knowledge of God, but for the life of searches. Because, frankly, people have not changed much and always need guidance. Yes, yes, still "there is nothing new under the sun"!
