I've never heard of her...Can you give me a link?ELVIRA OF GERMANY CRUCIFIED AS A CHRISTIAN REBEL
Very little is known about the life of Saint Elvira, what we know about her is written in an ancient book of the Catholic Church called "Acta Sanctorum", which means "Acts of the Saints".
What little is known about Santa Elvira is also written on the back of a print distributed in Barcelona. The text reads: "of Saint Elvira, who is not known the country or the circumstances of her martyrdom, was a victim of paganism and was sacrificed in Germany.
The image of Elvira reveals some of her history. Through her symbols we know something about her. The crown symbolizes virginity. So we can deduce that St. Elvira died a virgin. The white dress on her body is purity of heart. The red tunic under the cloak symbolizes martyrdom. The palm of her right hand symbolizes the victory of the saints who gave their lives for Christ. The sword in his left hand symbolizes the Word of God. This symbol makes us understand that St. Elvira preached the Word with strength and power and, probably, therefore, were martyred. The cross means Elvira was probably crucified to give her soul to God. And the brazier at the feet of Saint Elvira indicates that she suffered the torment of fire before she died.

Well, you know how it goes. Some impresario thinks he'll sell some tickets and suck up to the Emperor by crucifying some Christians, and then realizes that there isn't a Christian to be found in the town. What's a fellow to do?Even though she wasn’t?
