Book of Saints – Flavia Domitilla, Euphrosyna and Theodora


FLAVIA DOMITILLA, EUPHROSYNA and THEODORA (Saints) Virgin Martyrs (May 7) (First century) Flavia Domitilla, a great niece of the Emperors Domitian and Titus, and also of the famous Christian Senator Flavius Clemens, was baptised by Pope Saint Clement. For refusing to marry a Pagan, Domitian banished her to the Island of Pontia (Ponza), where she succeeded in converting her foster sisters, Theodora and Euphrosyna. All three were burned to death at Terracina in the reign of Trajan (A.D. 98-A.D. 117). Their relics were brought to Rome and enshrined in the Basilica, built in honour of Saint Domitilla’s martyred servants, Nereus and Achilleus.
