Santa Cristina of Bolsena (III century - 300) virgin and martyr, daughter of Urbano, "magister militum" of Bolsena, who according to the hagiographic tradition barely locked her in a twelve-year-old tower to worship pagan deities as vestals. Having already embraced the Christian faith, the girl refused to support her father, and she undertook torture atrocities to bend her; When the young man survived the sinking because the mill to which he was tied instead of sinking floated and brought it back to shore, the parent did not regret and died. His successor Dione continued to try to force him without success, and when he also died the third persecutor, Giuliano, he locked him in a burning furnace, but he was not able to touch it or to undo his faith; Finally he died by archers, like San Sebastiano, under the Emperor Diocletian, at the beginning of the 4th century. Commemoration on July 24th. Colored Etching, Italy 1886
