My sister bought me this bracelet from a monastery in Serbia. I've been searching for quite some time to find which Saint is depicted to no avail. It looks like St. John Chrysostom but I'm not sure.

Saint Who?

  • Is he holding two crosses or does he have two crosses on his vestments/robes? – Peter Turner Nov 20 '17 at 14:22
  • It looks like they are on his robes to be honest and he holds a book(?) – user39065 Nov 20 '17 at 14:23
  • I agree it looks like Chrysostom, but can't be certain. Can you read and post what is written to his left and right? – bradimus Nov 20 '17 at 14:24
  • @Peter The crosses are part of the vestments. I think that is a epitrachelion. – bradimus Nov 20 '17 at 14:27

    @ΚελεσίδηςΑντώνιος It is definitely John Chrysostom. Feel free to post more detailed pictures here, as, I believe, there are many Slavonic language speakers here (as me for example). – Andremoniy Nov 20 '17 at 14:45

It is almost certainly John Chrysostom. Compare your image with the middle figure of this icon of the Three Hierarchs

The middle figure is labeled Chrysostom. To the left of him is Basil the Great. To the right is Gregory the Theologian.

  • Thank you. I've also found the exact same image. It is him. i.pinimg.com/736x/55/82/ea/5582ea2ba3a981b285864509f4a4dda5.jpg – user39065 Nov 20 '17 at 14:42

    I was going to post what I learned by way of google reverse image search, but it's not enough to make a standalone answer: Sv. Jovan Zlatousti = St. John Chrysostom is an interesting tidbit. – Peter Turner Nov 20 '17 at 14:42
