Almost nothing is known of this saint except that she was very young 12 or 13 when she was
martyred in the last half of the third century. Various modes of death have been
suggested beheading, burning, strangling.
Legend has it that Agnes was a beautiful girl whom many young men wanted to
marry. Among those she refused, one reported her to the authorities for being a Christian. She was
arrested and confined to a house of prostitution. The legend continues that a man who looked upon
her lustfully lost his sight and had it restored by her prayer. Agnes was condemned, executed and
buried near Rome in a catacomb that eventually was named after her. The daughter of Constantine
built a basilica in her honor.
