Gold Plated Lithography with Saint Eugenia

Saint Eugenia came from a wealthy family of Rome, but at some point she moved to Alexandria. There the Saint comes in contact with Christianity through the letters of the Apostle Paul and she is baptized. A short time later and because her parents wanted to marry her against her will, Saint Eugenia disguises herself as a man, went in a monastery and becomes a monk. Years later she returned to her home in Rome and persuaded her parents to become Christians, but this displeased the pagans. So, with false accusations, she is arrested and beheaded, while her parents were killed along with her, as well as two servants. Her memory is commemorated on December 24.
