Saint Justin Martyr, Philosopher and Apologist BIG C CATHOLICS - May 31, 2017 It is ironic, perhaps, that it was the witness of the martyrs that helped inspire the conversion of St. Justin from paganism to the Christian faith; it was because he clung to and defended that faith that his own life would end in martyrdom in 165. Though his exact birthdate is unknown, scholars surmise that he was born into a pagan family sometime around the year 100.
