Santa EULALIA of Merida (290 - 304), a young Christian who suffered martyrdom under Diocletian. According to tradition, the Christian family would hide it safely in a country house to protect it from the persecution of Diocletian. Twelve, however, considering parental prudence as a sort of lack of conviction, and wishing to openly proclaim his faith, led the night in the 'light of Christ', abandoned the refuge and crossed the insidious campaign to go to court . Here, according to a hagiographic version, he held a long and stubborn discourse against paganism and persecutors of Christians, according to another version simply stated: 'I believe.' In any case he was arrested and subjected to cruel and repeated torture, never yielding all a sacrifice to sacrifice to the gods, and finally burning alive, as it sprouted from the mouths of the Holy Spirit in the form of a dove, commemoration on December 10. Colored engraving, Italy 1886
