St. CHRISTINA OF BOLSENA

Christian Saint

Also known as Christina of Tyre, Christina the Great Martyr

Roman noblewoman currently in Bolsena

There is no historical evidence that she was thrown into a lake with a millstone around her neck because of her faith.

She survived this until she was shot full of arrows. Her entry is justified because Bolsena in Italy has her relics but this does not include the millstone as far as we know.
