Book of Saints – Christiana – 15 December


CHRISTIANA (Saint) Virgin (December 15) (4th century) A Christian maiden who, taken captive by the Pagan Iberi, dwellers between the Caspian and the Black Sea, and reduced to slavery, kept with singular fidelity the precepts of her religion. Having by her miracles converted the Royal Family, the king sent ambassadors to Constantine, the first Christian Emperor, asking for priests to complete her work; and they on their arrival had little difficulty in bringing the whole nation under the yoke of Christ. As is plain, this Saint flourished in the fourth century; but her very name is unknown, Christiana (the Christian) being merely that given her by the Iberi.
