Saint Anastasia the Patrician’s Story
 

Anastasia Patricia according to a fanciful and romantic legend, was the beautiful daughter of an Egyptian nobleman and a lady-in-waiting at the court of Emperor Justinian in Constantinople. To escape the attentions of the Emperor, she left the court and entered a convent in Alexandria. On the death of Justinian's wife, Theodora, the Emperor again sought her, whereupon she fled to the desert and met Abbot Daniel, who allowed her to dress as a monk and live as a hermit in his community, where she lived a solitary life of constant prayer and austerity until her death twenty-eight years later.
