2 There are three saints called Pelagia and which one this rare but not unique dedication is made to is unknown. Between them the three Pelagias lived at Antioch and Tarsus; two were virgin martyrs, one was a licentious dancer; one dressed as a man, retired to a hermitage (the dancer, repentant); Virgin A jumped to death from a housetop; Virgin B was roasted inside a red-hot bull; the cross-dresser died of natural causes on the Mount of Olives.
