Justus is known to have written to the British and Irish Christians, asking them to conform to the ways of the Church of Rome. An extract from one of his letters is included in Bede. He does not come across as terribly tactful and the letter was largely ignored. The most notable event of his brief archiepiscopate was the evangelization of Northumbria. Paulinus was consecrated by Justus to be the first Archbishop of York and, within two years, Edwin of Northumbria was baptised, with many of his people, in a little church which he had built at York, near where now York Minster, stands. The good news was conveyed to Justus not long before his death, which is believed to have taken place on November 10, 627.[7] The modern Society of Archbishop Justus is named after Justus.[1] For other uses, see Christian (disambiguation). ...
