Book of Saints – Priscilla

Saint Priscilla of RomeArticle

(Saint) Widow (January 16) (1st century) A noble Roman matron, mother of the Senator Pudens and grandmother of Saints Praxedes and Pudentiana. The tradition is that she was the hostess in Rome of Saint Peter the Apostle, by whom she had been converted to Christianity. She appears to have survived the Apostle. A celebrated church in Rome bears her name. She must not be confused with her contemporary, Saint Priscilla, the wife of Aquila (Romans 16:3).
