Often depicted with a lamb (“agnus“ in Latin), Agnes lived around the year 300. The lovely 13-year-old daughter of Roman nobles had several suitors but, having consecrated herself to Christ, she refused to marry any of them. For this, the suitors attempted to force her into a life of impurity. Agnes resisted, and was eventually martyred for her beliefs. She is beloved as a saint of innocence and virtue.
