Book of Saints – Augusta


AUGUSTA (Saint) Virgin Martyr (March 27) (Date uncertain) The daughter of one of the Barbarian chiefs who overran Italy at the time of the fall of the Roman Empire. It is said that he, being a heathen, was so angered at finding that his child had become a Christian that he slew her with his own hand. Saint Augusta is still venerated in some of the Alpine villages in the north of Italy.
