Donato Frattaroli donato @ ASrippiwa OF MINEO Agrippina of Mineo, also known as Saint Agrippina {flourished 3 rd century, died 262) was venerated as a Virginity martyr in the Catholic Church and Ortho- dox Christianity. Nothing is known of her true identity and there is no evidence of any worship of an early date. Her legend states that she was a blonde princess born of a noble Roman family, and that she was martyred either during the reign of Roman Emperors Valerian or Diocletian. She was either beheaded or scourged. Her body was said to have been taken to Mineo, Sicily, by three devout Christian women named Bassa, Paula, and Agathonice (Agatonica). Her tomb became a popular pilgrimage destination and she was invoked as a patron saint against evil spirits, leprosy, thunderstorms, bac- teria diseases and bacterial infections. Agrippina was vener- ated in Greece, as it was claimed that her relics were translated from Sicily to Constantinople. Her feast day is no longer celebrated in the Catholic Church; how- ever her feast day is cel- ebrated in the Orthodox Church on June 23. There are two Catholic Churches named after Saint Agrippina. One church called Church of Saint Agrippina is located in Mineo and the other church Chapel of Saint Agrippina di Mineo is located in Boston.
