Simplicius was a disciple of Ammonius Hermiae ,  and Damascius ,  and was consequently one of the last members of the Neoplatonist school. The school had its headquarters in Athens. It became the centre of the last efforts to maintain Hellenistic religion against the encroachments of Christianity.
Imperial edicts enacted in the 5th century against paganism gave legal protection to pagans against personal maltreatment. Some were robbed of their property, some put to death. The order specified that if they did not within three months convert to Christianity, they were to be banished from the Empire. In addition, it was forbidden any longer to teach philosophy and jurisprudence in Athens.

As to his personal history, especially his migration to Persia , no definite allusions are to be found in the writings of Simplicius.
