A Christian woman, she fell into a life of sin for many years, had a conversion experience, returned to her faith, and lived the rest of her life as a penitent hermit in the deserts of Thebaid, Egypt. Living the rugged like of a desert hermit, no one knew she was a woman until she died and they were preparing her for burial.
