St. Aurea, Martyr, of Cordova
Commemorated on July 19
Aurea became a Christian after her husband died, and took the veil at a monastery in Cuteclara, Spain, where she remained for more than twenty years.
She was ultimately denounced as a Christian by her parents, and received a martyr’s crown by beheading in 856.
