ST. CHRISTINA, V. M.
SHE suffered many torments, and a cruel death, for
the faith in the persecution of Dioclesian, at Tyro, a city which
stood formerly in an island in the lake of Bolsero in Tuscany, but
has been long since swallowed up by the waters. Her relics are now at
Palermo in Sicily. She is much honored both in the Latin and Greek
church, and is named in the Martyrologies which bear the name of St.
Jerom, that of Bede augmented by Florus, and others. See Ughelli,
Italia Sacra, t. 5, and Pinius the Bollandist, t. 5, Julij, p. 495.
