Born c. 110 in Samaria, Justin became a Christian as an adult, in Ephesus after a stranger told him of Christ while they walked along a beach. He was martyed after more than a decade of teaching and writing spirtied defenses of Christianity in otherwise pagan Rome. Rusticus gave him an opporutunity to renounce his faith, and Justin refused. He was put to death c. 167.

Among Justin's works: First Apology, Second Apology, and Dialogue with Trypho.


Almighty and everlasting God, who didst find thy martyr Justin wandering from teacher to teacher, seeking the true God, and didst reveal to him the sublime wisdom of thine eternal Word:  Grant that all who seek thee, or a deeper knowledge of thee, may find and be found by thee; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
