Golden Legend – Life of Saint Praxede

Here followeth of Saint Praxede, Virgin.

Saint Praxede was sister of Saint Potentian which were the sisters of the Saints Donatus and Timothy, which were informed in the faith of the apostles. And when the cruel persecution was of many Christian men, that were martyred and slain, they buried the bodies of the holy martyrs, and gave all their goods and faculties to poor people for God’s love. And at last they slept in our Lord, and died about the year of our Lord, One hundred and sixty, under Mark Antony the provost.
