Santa Barbara Retablo Patron Saint of Architects, Artillery Men and Miners


Barbara's father was an abusive man who hid his daughter away from the world. A Christian, disguised as her doctor came and gave her instructions in faith. Her father ordered a large bath built for her. Because her faith was so great the bath took on curative powers. While her father was away Barbara ordered the construction of a third window in honor of the trinity. When her father returned he was enraged by her faith. He drew his sword to slay her. She leapt out of the window and found she was able to fly to a cave and hid. Her father found her and took her to the authorities. They demanded she renounce her faith. She would not and was brutally tortured, bu did not die. Her father took into the mountains and cut off her head. As he did this a bolt of lightning struck him dead.
