    Catherine of Alexandria (or Catherine of Alexandria) is one of the most famous saints. She is venerated as a martyr in the Catholic and Orthodox Churches and is one of the so-called Virgines capitales, the four great holy virgins. The St. Katharina is one of the fourteen holy helpers and is considered a helper for tongue disorders and language difficulties. She is the patron saint of schools, philosophical faculties and seamstresses. She is the patron of numerous churches.According to Christian tradition, she lived in the 3rd and early 4th centuries and suffered martyrdom under the Roman Emperor Maxentius (306–312), according to other sources under Maximinus Daia (305–313) or Maximian (286–305).According to the current state of research, Katharina is almost certainly an invented figure.
