Trinity Apologetics

Puritan Board Freshman
Hi brothers. Can you guys help me out on any quote from Justin Martyr showing that he believed in the Deity of the Holy Spirit or the personhood of the Spirit? Or perhaps simply Him being mentioned interacting (or alongside) the Father and the Son? I need it to prove Justin Martyr was a Trinitarian.

Thanks! :)

He had a troubled view of the Trinity, apart from any discussion of the Holy Spirit. He believed in both the Logos enthiatos (in God) and the Logos prosphorikos (with respect to creation). The problem is that this tended to make the Logos relative to creation. Personhood as a concept really wasn't developed back then, and even champions like Basil, whose Trinitarianism can't be challenged, were reserved on the Holy Spirit.
