Talk:Anastasia of Sirmium

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search


If you read the Catholic Encyclopedia article which is linked to from this one, you note that it says:

...Nevertheless, she is not a Roman saint, for she suffered martyrdom at Sirmium, and was not venerated at Rome until almost the end of the fifth century. It is true that a later legend, not earlier than the sixth century, makes Anastasia a Roman, though even in this legend she did not suffer martyrdom at Rome. The same legend connects her name with that of St. Chrysogonus, likewise not a Roman martyr, but put to death in Aquileia, though he had a church in Rome dedicated to his honour...

You can see why I found it strange that Anastasia was referred to as a "Roman Catholic saint"; even if she had hailed from Rome and been a member of the Latin-liturgy Roman Church, the term is anachronistic, since the Eastern and Western churches were not in schism when she died and the appellations "Roman Catholic," "Greek Orthodox," etc. were not in use. I believe she is venerated by Anglicans as well as Catholics and Orthodox, so to claim her as a "Roman Catholic" saint is misleading -- not false, but misleading -- as it tells only part of the story. --Jpbrenna 21:26, 26 October 2006 (UTC)

Redirect page "Anastasia the Roman" is Wrong[edit]

"Anastasia of Sirmium/Anastasia the Deliverer from Potions", whose feast day in the Orthodox Church is celebrated on December 22, is NOT the same saint as "Anastasia the Roman", whose feast day in the Orthodox Church is on October 29. The OCA website has 2 different lives for these 2 different martyr saints, who were probably (near) contemporaries. Wikipedia does not seem to have an article for Anastasia the Roman. :) ΙΣΧΣΝΙΚΑ-888 (talk) 04:00, 6 February 2011 (UTC)
