ST. PHILOGONIUS was educated for the law, and appeared at the bar with great success. He was admired for his eloquence, but still more for his integrity and the sanctity of his life.

St. John of Damascus

by

Born at Damascus, about 676; died some time between 754 and 787.  Mansur was probably the name of John’s father. What little is known of Mansur indicates that he was a sterling Christian whose infidel environment made no impression on his religious fervour.
