St Perpetua – a martyr


St Perpetua, unusually for a female saint was not a virgin.  She was a young mother (22).  She was arrested as part of a crackdown on recent converts.  She wrote an account of her experiences.


She was allowed to send her baby home before being killed – first wounded by a young cow and then killed by a sword.
