Died about 1306, a Carthusian nun who founded a settlement of the order at Eymieux in the department of Drome. She was specially devout to the Passion of Christ and is said to have driven a nail through her left hand to help herself to realize the sufferings of the Crucifixion. Her cultus was confirmed by Pius IX in 1869. (See "Anal. jur. pont.", 1869, XI, 264.) There are modern lives by Bellanger and Chapuis and a full account in Lecoulteux, "Ann. Ord. Cath." (V, 5). Her feast is on 13 February.


A fuller notice of all the above will be found in DUNBAR, Dictionary of Saintly Women (London, 1904), I, 107-110. Several of them also are noticed with more or less fullness in the Acta SS. on their respective days. Cf. CHEVALIER, Rép. des sources hist., Bio-Bibl. (2d ed., 1905).
