ST. HEMMA, WIDOW

SHE was nearly allied to the holy emperor St. Henry, and having sanctified the world and her family by her holy example in a married state, after the death of her husband, she founded the great double Benedictin monastery of Gurk, in Carinthia, for twenty monks and seventy-two nuns, in which she took the religious veil, and died the death of the saints in 1045.† See Papebroke, Jun. t. 5, p. 499.
