Description

Antique Lithography with Saint Barbara

Saint Barbara lived in the years of the emperor Maximian (286 – 305 AD) and was daughter of a pagan. Because she was very beautiful, her father locked her in a tower so that no one could see her. However, even there she was taught Christianity without her father knowing it. Her faith was revealed by an accident and then her father handed her over to the local lord, who tortured her. However, Saint Barbara was eventually slaughtered by her own father, who died shortly afterwards struck by lightning. The relics of the Saint are kept in Italy.
