Martyr Anthusa at Rome

Commemorated on December 8

The Holy Martyr Anthusa, the wife of a Roman official, was baptized by St Ambrose of Milan (December 7). When the city prefect’s wife Sunilda suggested that St Anthusa be baptized by an Arian, she refused. So she was committed to the fire, and received the crown of martyrdom.
