Women’s History Month: The Search for the Real Saint Barbara
Date: 3/15/2018

In honor of Women’s History Month join us for a talk by historian Erin Graffy, The Search for the Real Saint Barbara: An Historical Hunt.

In December 1602, on the eve of St. Barbara’s Feast Day, Spanish explorer Sebastián Vizcaíno sailed into the channel, whereupon the priest aboard the ship christened it “Santa Barbara.” But who was she? As one of the earliest martyrs of the Christian church, her story still fascinates and inspires us.
