Patron Saint of artificer, miners and firefighters, against lightning and sudden death.
Barbara's father locked her in a tower to prevent her from being converted to a Christian, but he failed and she became a Christian anyways. She was denounced and sentenced to beheading after many torments. They began to torture her with scourging rods which turned into peacock feathers, after that she was tortured with fire and finally underwent cutting of the breasts. Barbara was beheaded with the hands of her father who was struck by lightning.
