Saint Dula

(date unknown)

[Roman and most ancient Western Martyrology]

Nothing is known of this saint, except that she was a servant or slave-girl—as indeed her name implies—to a soldier at Nicomedia, and that she steadfastly resisted his importunities, till, exasperated at her opposition to his passion, he killed her, in an explosion of anger. Her real name is unknown ; the name Dula is simply the Greek word for servant-maid.
