St. John of Kanty (or John Cantius, 23 June 1390 – 24 December 1473) was a Polish priest, scholastic philosopher, physicist and theologian. During his time in Kraków, Cantius became well known in the city for his generosity and compassion toward the poor, especially needy students at the university. He subsisted on what was strictly necessary to sustain his life, giving alms regularly to the poor. He made one pilgrimage to Jerusalem and four pilgrimages on foot to Rome. He was named patron of Poland and Lithuania.
