Uniate archbishop and polemicist; Catholic saint. He was consecrated Bishop of Polatsk in 1617 and elevated to Archbishop in 1618. Kuntsevych raised the educational and moral standards of the Uniate clergy in his eparchy, and with Y. Rutsky initiated a major reform of the Basilian order. Supported by the Polish king and the Vatican, Kuntsevych took over many Orthodox churches and transformed them into Uniate ones which resulted in intense religious conflict in the region. Kuntsevych was killed by enraged Orthodox followers on 12 Nov. 1623. He was beatified by the Vatican in 1642 and canonized by Pope Pius IX on 29 June 1867, becoming the first eastern-rite saint in the Catholic Church. Kuntsevych wrote many polemical articles in Ukrainian and Polish)
