The Martyrs Cyprian and Justina. Russian Orthodox Icon. Cyprian was a powerful magician who attempted to corrupt the beautiful young Justina. Discovering that his magic was powerless against the simple faith of Justina, Cyprian renounced the Devil, embraced Christ, and eventually became a bishop in the Orthodox Church. St. Justina became a nun and then the abbess of a convent. Both were martyred in 304 during Diocletian's persecution of Christians.
