St. Christina

St. ChristinaSt. Christina, a Tuscan virgin, who when ten years old had taken and destroyed the silver idols in her father’s house, was in consequence tied to a post and pierced with arrows. Her tomb was discovered in 1880; an examination of her relics showed that she was scarcely more than fourteen years of age at the time of her death.
