Religious Figure
    Sometimes known as Berenice
    Mentioned in the apocryphal work ‘The Acts of Pilate'
    Wiped Jesus Christ's face with her veil as he carried his cross to Calvary
    Christ's image was miraculously imprinted on the veil
    Veil kept at St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican City
    She is not mentioned in the bible or early histories of the saints.
    She has been variously referred to as Herod's niece, Lazarus's sister and a Roman soldier's wife.
    Her story could have been created to account for a famed image of Christ.
    Her name may be a corruption of ‘vera icon,' meaning true image.
    In 1999, a Jesuit scholar said he had found the real veil and accused the Vatican of displaying a fake for centuries.
    She is one of the most beloved of Catholic saints.
    She braved the wrath of Roman soldiers to comfort a man on his way to be executed.
    She may have miraculously cured Tiberius, causing him to convert.
    In some stories she ends up preaching in France.
    Unlike other saints, she does not seem to have suffered a gory martyrdom.
    She is, appropriately enough, the patron saint of photographers.
