Life[ edit ] A bearded Justin Martyr presenting an open book to a Roman emperor.
Engraving by Jacques Callot. He says he tried first the school of a Stoic philosopher, who was unable to explain God's being to him. He then attended a Peripatetic philosopher but was put off because the philosopher was too eager for his fee.
Then he went to hear a Pythagorean philosopher who demanded that he first learn music, astronomy, and geometry, which he did not wish to do.
Subsequently, he adopted Platonism after encountering a Platonist thinker who had recently settled in his city. And the perception of immaterial things quite overpowered me, and the Apol 104 of ideas furnished my mind with wings, so that in a little while I supposed that I had become wise; and such was my stupidity, I expected forthwith to look upon God, for this is the end of Plato's philosophy.
There existed, long before this time, certain men more ancient than all those who are esteemed philosophers, both righteous and beloved by God, who spoke by the Divine Apol 104, and foretold events which would take place, and which are now taking place.
They are called prophets. These alone both saw and announced the truth to men, neither reverencing nor fearing any man, not influenced by a desire for glory, but speaking those things alone which they saw and which they heard, being filled with the Holy Spirit. Their writings are still extant, and he who has read them is very much helped in his knowledge of the beginning and end of things, and of those matters which the philosopher ought to know, provided he has believed them.
For they did not use demonstration in their treatises, seeing that they were witnesses to the truth above all demonstration, and worthy of belief; and those events which have happened, and those which are happening, compel you to assent to the utterances made by them, although, indeed, they were entitled to credit on account of the miracles which they performed, since they both glorified the Creator, the God and Father of all things, and proclaimed His Son, the Christ [sent] by Him: But pray that, above all things, the gates of light may be opened to you; for these things cannot be perceived or understood by all, but only by the man to whom God and His Christ have imparted wisdom.
His newfound convictions were only bolstered by the ascetic lives of the early Christians and the heroic example of the martyrswhose piety convinced him of the moral and spiritual superiority of Christian doctrine.
As a result, he thenceforth decided that the only option for him was to travel throughout the land, spreading the knowledge of Christianity as the "true philosophy.
He then adopted the dress of a philosopher himself and traveled about teaching.
During the reign of Antoninus Piushe arrived in Rome and started his own school. Tatian was one of his pupils.
Justin was tried, together with six companions, by Junius Rusticuswho was urban prefect fromand was beheaded.
