Book of Saints – Tatiana

Saint Tatiana of RomeArticle

(Saint) Martyr (January 12) (3rd century) A Christian woman in Rome, cast to the wild beasts in the Amphitheatre, but miraculously preserved from them and in the end beheaded, during the reign of the Emperor Alexander Severus (A.D. 227). She may be identical with the Saint Daciana whom the Greeks honour on January 12; but is quite other than the famous Roman Martyr Saint Martina who suffered about the same time, and with whom some of the moderns have sought to identify her.
