Barbara's name was known in 7th century Rome and devotion to her can be traced to the 9th century. Although the historic facts of her life are considered doubious she is considered a saint by the Catholic Church. She is particularly honoured in the eastern church.
According to tradition Barbara was the daughter of a rich pagan who kept her locked up in a tower in order to
preserve her from the outside world. Having secretly become a Christian,
she rejected an offer of marriage arranged by her father. She was eventually murdered by her father who was subsequently struck by lightening.
