Saint Pelagia of Antioch is a virgin-martyr saint in the Church.


She lived in what is now the modern country of Turkey in the early fourth century. When she was around fifteen years old, a group of soldiers came to arrest her for being a Christian. When the soldiers attempted to sexually assault her, she jumped from her roof rather than face the dishonor it would bring her. Her feast is held on October 8.
