Book of Saints – Albina


ALBINA (Saint) Virgin Martyr (December 16) (3rd century) A young Christian maiden who suffered at Caesarea in Palestine, in the persecution under Decius (A.D. 250). But the Roman Martyrology seems to imply that she was carried to Italy and there put to death. Her relics have certainly from time immemorial been enshrined in the Cathedral of Gaeta in the Neapolitan territory. The Greeks allow this, but explain it by urging a miraculous translation of her body after martyrdom.
