Saint Epistemis

Memorial

Profile

Married to Saint Galation, who brought her to the faith. They both then retired to monasteries and were later martyred in the persecutions of Decius. It’s possible they were fictional, the story of their lives being written as fiction but misunderstood as fact; however, married couples agreeing to enter religious life was not unusual at the time.
