John IV Faster

   Patriarch of Constantinople (qq.v.) from 582595. John was the first to use the title "Ecumenical Patriarch" (q.v.), which provoked hostile reactions from Pope Pelagius II and his successor Gregory I (q.v.), who was especially sensitive to any implied attack on papal primacy (q.v.).
