Thecʹla (St.)

,

styled in Greek martyrologies the proto-martyress, as St. Stephen is the proto-martyr. All that is known of her is from a book called the Periods, or Acts of Paul and Thecla, pronounced apocryphal by Pope Gelaʹsius, and unhappily lost. According to the legend, Thecla was born of a noble family in Icoʹnium, and was converted by the preaching of St. Paul.
