Book of Saints – Iphigenia


(Saint) Virgin (September 21) (1st century) A Virgin converted to Christianity and afterwards consecrated to God by Saint Matthew the Evangelist, Apostle of Ethiopia. The extant Acts of Saint Matthew are however so untrustworthy that no reliance can be placed on the particulars given therein of St Iphigenia and others of the first fruits of the Gospel in Ethiopia.
