Description

Gold Plated Lithography with Saint Euphemia

Saint Euphemia had such a strong faith that despite being severely tortured she always managed to remain unharmed. Eventually, the executioners who tortured her threw her into the wild beasts and she was tragically killed by a bear. According to Orthodox tradition, Saint Euphemia was born in Chalcedon during the reign of Diocletian and was a devout Christian. When at some point the pagan ruler of the region ordered everyone to sacrifice to the idols, Saint Euphemia refused to do so and was arrested. While she was imprisoned, the ruler tried in every way to persuade her to become a pagan, but without success. When he finally realized that the Saint would never deny her faith, horrible tortures began.
