Book of Saints – Fusca and Maura


(Saints) Martyrs (February 13) (3rd century) The Christian virgin Fusca converted her nurse Maura, and they were both baptised by Saint Ermolaus. As Fusca courageously resisted the entreaties of her parents to induce her to apostacize, her father resolved to put her to death; but his design was frustrated. Later, during the Decian persecution (A.D. 250), the Judge Quintillianus had her and Saint Maura tortured and executed at Ravenna, her birthplace. Her Relics were taken to Africa, but have since been brought back to Italy and are venerated in one of the islets near Venire.
