Agnes of Rome (c. 291 – c.304) is a virgin–martyr, venerated as a saint in the Roman Catholic Church, Eastern Catholic Churches, the Anglican Communion, and in Eastern Orthodoxy. She is one of seven women, excluding the Blessed Virgin, commemorated by name in the Canon of the Mass. She is the patron saint of chastity, gardeners, girls, engaged couples, rape victims, and virgins.

She is also known as Saint Agnes and Saint Ines. Her memorial, which commemorates her martyrdom, is 21 January in both the Roman Catholic calendar of saints and in the General Roman Calendar of 1962. The 1962 calendar includes a second feast on 28 January, which commemorates her birthday. Agnes is depicted in art with a lamb, as her name resembles the Latin word for “lamb”, agnus. The name “Agnes” is actually derived from the feminine Greek adjective “hagnē” (ἁγνή) meaning “chaste, pure, sacred”.

    bautiful work of man doings at his uglyest— great job john-not many around now with her—sense of self worth-

  • St Agnes was one of the most compelling and mysterious stories in Christiandom. The early saints where the most interesting of all.

    This is dark but really captures attention. You’ve really captured the brutality of her death. Nice work John!

  • Unfortunately violent death in ancient Rome was very common. The Romans were especially brutal at torture and horrible execution styles.
