WILGEFORTIS CRUCIFIED

Gabriel Roman arena 498-1.jpg
Wilgefortis was the daughter of a pagan Lusitanian (today: Portuguese) king. She had become a Christian and even made a vow of celibacy, but concealed this from her father. When the king decided to give her in marriage to a pagan nobleman, Wilgefortis was dismayed. She prayed to God for a way out of this situation.
God heard her prayer and worked a miracle: One morning Wilgefortis woke up sprouting a beard. The prospective husband promptly lost his interest, and the marriage was called off.
The king was so disgusted that he ordered his daughter to be crucified.

EUPHEMIA OF CHALCEDON CRUCIFIED AND TORTURED

Euphemia was born about 288 AD in Chalcedon (today: Kadıköy, now a quarter of Ístanbul, Turkey) into a wealthy, aristocratic family. She and her parents had become Christians and lived a pious life, using their wealth to support the poor.
In 303, during the era of Diocletianus, Euphemia was requested to make a sacrifice to Ares, the Greek god of war. She refused and was promptly arrested.
According to the tradition, before being burned alive, or lacerated on a spiked wheel, or given to beasts, she was fixed to a cross and savagely scourged.
Her relics were brought to the Council of Chalcedon in 451, where they miraculously helped to decide some of the theological issues. Her memorial day is September 16th.

FIRMINA OF AMELIA SINGED WITH TORCHES​

Firmina lived towards the end of the 3rd Century in Amelia, a town in Umbria (today: Italy). Her family was wealthy; her father was a high-ranking Roman official.
When the persecution of Emperor Diocletianus began, she could have stayed in her rather remote home town and led an untroubled life. Instead, she chose to go to Rome and to support the Christian community there. Firmina was especially well remembered by those who had been sentenced to forced labour in the Roman quarries.
Then, however, Firmina was arrested as a Christian herself. As the Christians refused to make sacrifices to the god-emperor, they were thought to be illoyal subjects or even traitors. However, the judge presiding over Firmina's trial was a just man and allowed the young woman to defend herself. She did this so well that the judge acquitted her; later he became a Christian himself.
But the persecution was still going on. In 303 Firmina was arrested again. This time her judge was a cruel and arrogant man who let her be tortured with flaming torches in order to make her renounce her faith. But she remained steadfast, and in the end the judge gave up and had her beheaded.

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.

JULITTA OF IKONIUM CRUCIFIED AD TORTURED WITH HOOKS

According to one version of their martyrdom, Julitta and her three-year-old son Cyricus had fled to Tarsus and were identified as Christians. Julitta was tortured and Cyricus, being held by the governor of Tarsus, scratched the governor's face and was killed by being thrown down by some stairs. Julitta did not weep but celebrated the fact that her son had earned the crown of martyrdom. In anger, the governor then decreed that Julitta had to be crucified and her sides should be ripped apart with hooks, and then she was beheaded.

FEMALE SLAVE CRUCIFIED AS A CHRISTIAN REBEL
Even though she wasn’t? :rolleyes:
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? ;) :D
