Book of Saints – Charitina


CHARITINA (Saint) Virgin Martyr (October 5) (4th century) A Christian who, under Diocletian (A.D. 304), probably at Amasa on the Black Sea, after enduring incredible tortures, breathed forth her soul in the torture chamber, while absorbed in prayer. The similarity of name and of many of the details of martyrdom have led some moderns to confuse Saint Charitina with Saint Catharine of Alexandria, but all tradition is against their view.
