In 577 AD, Patriarch [[John Scholasticus|John III Scholasticus]] was responible for the first collection of Canon Law, the ''' ''Nomocanon'' ''', of the [[Orthodox Church]].
 
During the reign of emperor Heraclius, the ''Nomocanon'' was consolidated, being the earliest extant form of this collection. Its two sections include the ecclesiastical canons and the imperial laws, the latter in fourteen titles. This collection was long held in esteem and passed into the [[Church of Russia|Russian Church]].
