Roman Catholic Saint. An reputed early Christian martyr, her story is inconsistent except in that she was mutilated and killed by Saracens in Spain. She is most often related as having been born in Bayonne, France. In iconic art she is often depicted bound, with her hands amputated. She is the patron saint of Jaca, Spain and fair weather. She was canonized by Pope Leo XIII in 1902. Her feast day is June 25. She is also known as Saint Eurosia. (bio by: Iola)
