Book of Saints – Justus – 14 July


(Saint) Martyr (July 14) (Date unknown) A Roman born, miraculously converted to Christianity, and a soldier in the Imperial army. This may have brought him into the East. There is no local tradition in regard to him in Rome, though it is there that he is said to have suffered martyrdom. His head is alleged to have been crushed in under a red-hot helmet. No dates are given. He was in great honour at Constantinople; and perhaps it was there, in “New Rome,” that his Passion really took place.
