Martyr Bebaia (Barbea) of Edessa

The Holy Martyr Bebaia of Edessa was the sister of Saint Sarbelus, and suffered in the second century under the emperor Trajan for confessing Christianity. Saint Sarbelus was a priest of the idols at Edessa, but was converted to Christ by a certain bishop, then he and his sister were baptized. Pagans tortured the saints for a long while, and then beheaded them.

These saints are also commemorated on January 29.
