A native of Pannonia, he converted to Christianity at a young age.

He served in the Roman cavalry in Gaul, but left military service at some point prior to 361, when he embraced Trinitarianism and became a disciple of Hilary of Poitiers, establishing the monastery at Ligugé.

He was consecrated as Bishop of Caesarodunum (Tours) in 371.Although the conversion of the Emperor Constantine and the subsequent programme of church-building gave a greater impetus to the spread of the religion, it was still a minority faith.As the son of a veteran officer, Martin at fifteen was required to join a cavalry ala.According to the early sources, Martin decided to seek shelter on the island then called Gallinaria, now Isola d'Albenga, in the Ligurian Sea, where he lived the solitary life of a hermit.With the return of Hilary to his see in 361, Martin joined him and established a hermitage nearby, which soon attracted converts and followers.He had been drawn to Tours by a ruse — he was urged to come to minister to someone sick — and was brought to the church, where he reluctantly allowed himself to be consecrated bishop.
