- John of Pinna
- John of Panaca
- John of Parran
- John the Syrian
Hermit in Syria. Fled to Pinna, Italy to escape Monophysite persecution. He arrived in the dead of winter; some hunters witnessed him sit beside a bare, leafless pear tree which burst full bloom due to the holy man’s proximity. Founded abbeys in Pinna and Pesaro, Italy, and served as Abbot at Pinna for 44 years.
