EULALIA

Eulalia was a devout Christian virgin, whose mother sequestered her in the countryside in AD 304 because all citizens were required to avow faith in the Roman gods. Eulalia ran away to the law court of the governor Dacian at Emerita, professed herself a Christian, insulted the pagan gods and emperor Maximian, and challenged the authorities to martyr her. The judge's attempts at flattery and bribery failed.

She was then stripped by the soldiers, tortured with hooks and torches, and burnt at the stake, suffocating from smoke inhalation. She taunted her torturers all the while, and as she expired a dove flew out of her mouth. This frightened away the soldiers and allowed a miraculous snow to cover her nakedness, its whiteness indicating her sainthood.

From the serie Martyrs, where is the God?

Gracias, es parte de una serie que se llama Mártires, dónde esta Dios? y es una crítica a la compasión de Dios en la iglesia católica.

Saludos querida amiga :hug:
