Agia Aikaterini or Agia Ekaterini ( Αγία Αικατερίνη ) meaning Saint Catherine ( Γύφτικα) is renowned for her intellect, wisdom, and persuasive oratory. A princess in Alexandria and highly educated in the classics and Christian theology, she was ordered at age eighteen by Emperor Maxentius to worship the Olympian gods. She refused to do so and at her trial debated at least fifty philosophers, converting all of them to Christianity. Placed in jail, she converted the empress and many soldiers. Tortured on a wheel, she was released by an angel, but was eventually beheaded in 311. St. Katherine is the patron saint of scholars. Her relics can be found at: St. Nicholas Church, Kato Palesia, Athens; Zerbitsa Monastery, Sparta; St. Katherine Monastery at Mt. Sinai, Egypt.
