Saint Vibiana : biography


Saint Vibiana is a third-century virgin martyr of the Roman Catholic Church. She is the patroness of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles where she is honored with a memorial feast on September 1.

The remains of Vibiana were rediscovered on December 9, 1853 in ancient catacombs near the Appian Way. A marble tablet adorned her tomb upon which was inscribed "to the soul of the innocent and pure Vibiana", above a laurel wreath. A wreath was a symbol of martydom among ancient Christians.Turner, Dan. “Who Needs That Old Stuff Anyway?” Los Angeles Times August 6, 2007: A18.

Since 2002, the relic remains of Vibiana are housed in the mausoleum of the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels. The former Cathedral of Saint Vibiana in Los Angeles, California was dedicated to her.
