Saint Julia - Virgin, Martyr (fifth century).
Saint Julia was a noble virgin of Carthage, who, when the city was taken by Genseric in 439, was sold for a slave to a pagan merchant of Syria. Whenever she was not employed in household affairs, her time was devoted to prayer and reading books of piety. In 763 the king of Lombardy transferred her relics to Brescia, where her memory is celebrated with great devotion.
