Discussion of the late Life of St John and what it tells us about John's reputation around the turn of the millennium, when it was written. Survey of John's works, including the spurious Balaam and Josaphat, which again reveals something of John's later reputation in Byzantium. How John was both shaped by tradition and he himself came to shape it.
