Book of Saints – Euthalia


EUTHALIA (Saint) Virgin Martyr (August 27) (3rd century) A Sicilian maiden who, with her mother, was converted to Christianity by the holy martyr Alpheus and his fellow-sufferers. She herself gave her life for Christ, being, as tradition has it, done to death by her own brother. She was probably one of the victims of the Decian persecution in the middle of the third century. It is right to mention that the Bollandists consider her very existence to be hardly proved.
