Saint’s Biography

Saint Justin is considered by an ancient tradition the evangelizer the first bishop of Chieti despite many uncertainties about the period in which he lived.

Historical evidence for Justin’s existence from before the 15th century does not exist. His passio dates from the 15th century and was modeled mostly on that of a saint with the same name,while his brothers Florentius and Felix were martyred at Furci in the Abruzzo along with Justin’s niece Justa.

Chieti’s cathedral (Duomo) was dedicated to him and built in the 9th century. Most of his relics, such as his arm, are found in an urn placed in the crypt of the cathedral of Chieti. His celebration was moved to January 14 in Chieti and later to May 11.
