Jevstatije I (Serbian: Јевстатије I) was the sixth Serbian Archbishop, holding the office from 1279 to 1286.[1] He was born in the Budimlje parish, near Ivangrad in Zeta.[2] He took his monastics vows in Zeta, then left for the Hilandar monastery, where he later became the hegumen (abbot), succeeding Joanikije, holding the office 1162–65.[3] He left the monastery and became the Bishop of Zeta, and later the Serbian Archbishop in 1279, succeeding Joanikije I. He died on 4 January 1286. His relics were buried in the Monastery of Peć in 1289-1290, after being transferred from the ruined Žiča monastery.[4] The Serbian Orthodox Church commemorates him on 4 January according to the Julian calendar, or 17 January according to the Gregorian calendar.
