- Elizabeth Batholomea Picenardi
- Elisabeth Picenardi of Mantua
Born wealthy. Received some formal education, instruction in meditation by her mother, and was taught Latin by her father so she could read the Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Her mother died when Elizabeth was young, and she and a sister joined the third order of the Servites. Elizabeth was noted for her holiness, humility and gentleness, and she attracted many other young women to the Servites, many of whom formed a community under Elizabeth’s direction.
