Youngest of six children of Domenico de Pericolo. Drawn to the religious life from an early age. Augustinian recluse at the monastery of Saint Lucia in Aquileia, Italy in June 1505, taking the name Christina. Abbess. Prophet, healer, and visionary, noted for her piety, humility, generosity to the poor, and ecstasies; sought after as a spiritual director by people from all walks of life. On the feast of Corpus Christi, Christina was seen to levitate, and the image of a Host in a golden pyx radiated from her breast. A vision on Good Friday caused invisible stigmata and the pains of Crucifixion until the next day.
