XIX century. The holiday in honour of great venerables was set up in Constantinople in 1084. The legend says that these bishops were arguing which of them is greater and better. Then the Metropolitan named John has a vision - these three bishops should be regarded as equal and a holiday for all of them should be set up. These saints are called "Worldy Angels", "Heavenly People", "Columns of Truch and Faith" and "The Wisest Doctors of Soul Weaknessess" during the church services on January 30th for the Feast of the Three Holy Hierarchs.
