St. Elizabeth the New Martyr & St. Elizabeth of Hungary
« on: December 19, 2014, 03:22:37 PM »
I just found out about St. Elizabeth the New Martyr, whom I understand to be a descendant of St. Elizabeth of Hungary. Was St. Elizabeth the New Martyr a convert from Catholicism or Protestantism? I've read conflicting things.

St. Elizabeth of Hungary was one of my special patrons as a Roman Catholic. Do we know if St. Elizabeth the New Martyr had any private devotion to her Roman Catholic namesake?

I would love to learn more about this Orthodox saint and convert.

The grand duchess was raised as a Lutheran. Christopher Warwick wrote a beautiful biography of her.

It's common knowledge that you secretly want to be born in early 17th century Russia.  As a serf or a royal, I know not.  Chances are serf.

Kelly has spoken.

As it has been said, let it be done.
Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.

Thanks! I'll have to check that out.

Why do posters that claim to have me blocked keep sending me pms and responding to my posts? That makes no sense.

She has a Wikipedia entry if you want to learn about her.

She's pretty cool. GD Elizabeth was named after her, and her paternal grandmother.
