John Chrysostom (d. 407) of Antioch and then bishop of Constantinople, knew of glossolalia only as a scriptural happening that had in the meantime ceased, although in his Homily XXIX, dealing with I Corinthians 12:1-11, Chrysostom had no doubt that at their adult believers' baptism Christians of an earlier age "began to speak, one in the tongue of the Persians, another in that of the Romans, another in that of the Indians, or in some other language Faith That Prevails.
