One success of Godunov's rule was the establishment of the Russian patriarchate. Russia had been converted by Greek Orthodox missionaries and was technically subject to the Patriarch of Constantinople. From 1448 onward the Russian Church governed itself in ecclesiastical matters (i.e. it was autocephalous - it had its own head) but only in 1589 did Godunov persuade the patriarch of Constantinople to recognize his close friend, Job (Iov), the Metropolitan of Moscow, as patriarch.
