Book of Saints – Crispina


(Saint) Virgin Martyr (December 5) (4th century) One of the most famous of the African Martyrs of the Early Church. We have still her Panegyric preached by the great Saint Augustine. She was a wealthy matron of high birth, who, preferring her Faith to all worldly goods, cheerfully laid down her life for Christ. Having been put to the torture and forced to undergo the most shameful indignities, she was beheaded at Thebeste in Numidia (A.D. 304).
