Pelagia

d. c.311. Martyred in Antioch when only fifteen, she threw herself into the sea from a window to preserve her chastity when her home was surrounded by soldiers probably during the persecution by Diocletian. The name is also associated with a fourth-century recluse living in a grotto on the Mount of Olives practicing severe penances, and also with a virgin martyr of Tarsus who was reputed to have been burnt for refusing to become the mistress of the emperor.
