Pre-Congregation Saint
Daughter of ambitious Roman functionary.
Denounced by her betrothed to the tribunal
during the persecutions of Maximianus, she
suffered by being burned, boiled in oil and
finally beheaded.

Resisted fierce temptations by the Devil to
recant, hence her frequent depiction as a
maiden leading a dragon in chains.

Relics at Cumae, Naples and in Brussels, Belgium.
Well attested to as a historical figure, and listed in
early church calendars.

Patroness: Bodily Ills, Invoke Against: Temptation, the Devil
