This religious uproar in Byzantine Christendom broke out in 726 when Eastern Emperor Leo III (680-741), who had just managed to fight off the Muslim army from the gates of Constantinople and retake most of Asia minor, went on the offensive against religious icons.
John had inherited from his Christian father a high position in the caliph's government; but losing this position, he became a monk near Jerusalem.
He became an outspoken critic of the Emperor's iconoclastic policy, making a distinction between veneration and worship, stating that veneration of icons was merely the focus on the visible human nature of Christ--themselves, like the written Gospels, merely testimonies to the divine Christ.
