St John, Metropolitan of Kiev.

Commemorated August 31 in the Orthodox Christian Menaion

From the Prologue

A Bulgarian, he went to Kiev in 1080 and at once achieved such eminence that he was quickly raised to the rank of Metropolitan. He wrote a letter to Pope Clement, in which he denounced him for certain practices that the Roman Church had introduced. He governed the Church for eight years, and entered peacefully into rest in 1089.
