Profile

    Married to Saint Chrysanthus. Zealous and public in her Christianity. Martyred under Numerian and Carinus.

    Not surprisingly, many legends developed around couple of married martyrs, and others were rewritten to use them as their lead characters. Modern scholarship has dismissed all these leaving only two of the thousands of faithful lost in the early days of the Church.
