caption: SANTA BARBARA (about 273-306), the patron saint of miners, artillerymen, firefighters and all those living in danger of sudden death. Lived in the third century in Kocaeli, it was locked up by her father in a tower to preserve the beauty; the girl followed her mother in the conversion to Christianity and was denounced for this by her father Dioscorus, who was forced by the magistrate to personally carry out the sentence to death by beheading, after two days of atrocious torture. According to legend, the pagan father executed the judgment on the battered child, but then he was the victim of a lightning bolt, interpreted as divine punishment. Recurrence December 4.
