Saint Julitta of Caesarea



Rich lay woman in Caesarea, Cappadocia (in modern Turkey) whose property was stolen by an influential local pagan. She took him to court where he objected that she had no standing or rights in court as she was a Christian. The judge ordered her to prove her standing by making a sacrifice to an idol; she refused. She was immediately arrested, convicted of Christianity, and martyred. Saint Basil the Great wrote about her.
