Tradition says that Agnes was born in AD291 a member of the Roman nobility, and raised in a Christian family. At 12 or 13, she was martyred during the reign of the Roman Emperor Diocletian, on January 21, 304.

She is a patron saint of chastity, gardeners, girls, engaged couples, rape survivors, and virgins.
