The Holy Martyr Julitta.

Commemorated July 31 in the Orthodox Christian Menaion

From the Prologue

From Caesarea in Cappadocia, she was involved in a quarrel with her neighbour over some land. The neighbour went to the judge and denounced her as a Christian, which put her at that time outside the protection of the law. St Julitta was more willing to give up her land than her faith. But the wicked pagans were not willing even then to leave her in peace, but tortured her and finally burned her, in the year 303. Thus this handmaid of Christ sacrificed both her lands and her body for the sake of the eternal salvation of her soul.
