(Saint) Virgin Martyr (May 22) (Date unknown) A Spanish Saint concerning whom we have unfortunately no facts which we can assert for certain. Several cities in Spain and in Southern France put forward pretensions to the possession of her relics. Some writers date her martyrdom in the fifth century. The most we can say is that there certainly flourished a Saint Quiteria in an early century on the borders of France and Spain, and that, if in time of persecution she in any way attracted attention, it is highly probable that she ended her life by martyrdom.
