Martyrdom of St. Elizabeth and the Nun Barbara

Today the Russian Orthodox Church commemorates the Holy New Martyr Grand Duchess Elizabeth and the Nun Barbara.

These two Saints, and those with them, suffered martyrdom near the town of Alapaevsk in Siberia in July of 1918.

More information on these two saints can be found here.

Many photos of the Saints and the site of their martyrdom can be seen both here and here.

An Akathist to Saint Elizabeth and the other martyrs and can be found here.
