Saint Jevstatije I or Eustathius I[1] (Serbian: Јевстатије I, Greek: Εὐστάθιος) was the sixth Serbian Archbishop, holding the office from 1279 to 1286.[2]

He was born in the Budimlje parish, near Ivangrad.[3] As a young man he took his monastics vows in Zeta, before going to Hilandar monastery, where he later became the hegumen (abbot), succeeding Joanikije, holding the office 1162-1165.[1] He left the monastery and became the Bishop of Zeta, and later the Serbian Archbishop in 1279, succeeding Joanikije I.[1] He died on 4 January 1286. His relics were buried in the Patriarchate 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.
