St. Ignatius of Antioch, born between 35 and 50 A.D., was an early Christian church father. He was martyred in Rome sometime between 98 and 117 A.D.

This homily on St. Igantius of Antioch was written sometime in the late 4th century by St. John Chrysostom, the bishop of Constantinople. St. John Chrysostom is recognized as a Doctor of the Church by the Eastern Orthodox and Catholic Churches. St. John Chrysostom was ordained in Antioch, where he worshiped and ministered at the church containing St. Ignatius's relics.

Ignatius was martyred in Rome at the Flavian Amphitheatre, killed by wild animals. His remains were returned to Antioch, where they lay until 637. In 637, his remains were removed to Rome to the Church of St. Clement.
