Article

Martyr in 126 in Rome, Italy. She was a wealthy widow of Umbria in Italy, converted to Christianity by her servant Serapia, who was martyred for her faith. Sabina at first escaped because of her position, but was so zealous in the practise of her religion that she too was put to death; her relics were brought to the Aventine in 430, and there a basilica bears her name. Feast, Roman Calendar, 29 August.
