According to tradition, Saint Agnes was a member of theRomannobility born c. 291 and raised in aChristianfamily. She suffered martyrdom at the age of twelveor thirteen during the reign of theRoman EmperorDiocletian, on 21 January 304.
Agnes, whose name means “chaste” in Greek, was a beautiful young girl of wealthy family and therefore had many suitors of high rank. Details of her story are unreliable, but legend holds that the young men, slighted by Agnes' resolute devotion to religious purity, submitted her name to the authorities as a follower of Christianity.
ThePrefectSempronius condemned her to be dragged naked through the streets to a brothel. Various versions of the legend give different methods of escape from this predicament. In one, as she prayed, her hair grew and covered her body.It was also said that all of the men who attempted to rape her were immediately struck blind. In another the son of the prefect is struck dead, but revived after Agnes prayed for him, causing her release. There is then a trial from which Sempronius excuses himself, and another figure presides, sentencing her to death. When led out to die she wastied to a stake, but the bundle of wood would not burn, or the flames parted away from her, whereupon the officer in charge of the troops drew or, in some other texts, stabbed her in the throat. It is also said that the blood of Agnes poured to the stadium floor where other Christians soaked up the blood with cloths.Agnes depicted on the Royal Gold Cup
Agnes was buried beside the Via Nomentana in Rome.A few days after Agnes' death, her foster-sister, SaintEmerentiana, was found praying by her tomb; she claimed to be the daughter of Agnes'wet nurse, and was stoned to death after refusing to leave the place and reprimanding the pagans for killing her foster sister. Emerentiana was also latercanonized. The daughter ofConstantine I,Saint Constance, was also said to have been cured ofleprosyafter praying at Agnes' tomb. Emerentiana and Constance appear in the scenes from the life of Agnes on the 14th-centuryRoyal Gold Cupin theBritish Museum.
An early account of Agnes' death, stressing her steadfastness and virginity, but not the legendary features of the tradition, is given bySaint Ambrose.Veneration
Agnes' bones are conserved beneath the high altar in the church ofSant'Agnese fuori le murain Rome, built over thecatacombthat housed Agnes' tomb. Her skull is preserved in a separate chapel in the church ofSant'Agnese in Agonein Rome'sPiazza Navona.Patronage
Saint Agnes is the patron saint of young girls. Folk custom called for them to practiseritualson Saint Agnes' Eve (20–21 January) with a view to discovering their future husbands. Thissuperstitionhas been immortalised inJohn Keats'spoem,"The Eve of Saint Agnes".Santa Inés, Legacy
TheCongregation of Sisters of St. Agnesis a Roman Catholic religious community for women based in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. It was founded in 1858, by Father Caspar Rehrl, an Austrian missionary, who established the sisterhood of pioneer women under the patronage of St. Agnes of Rome, to whom he had a particular devotion.
It is customary on her feast day for two lambs to be brought from theTrappistabbey ofTre Fontanein Rome to be blessed by the Pope. OnHoly Thursdaythey are shorn, and from the wool is woven thepalliumwhich the pope gives to a newly consecrated metropolitanarchbishopas a sign of his jurisdiction and his union with the pope.Iconography
