The Skull of Saint Tatiana the Martyr of Rome



After the Fall of Constantinople (1453), when the pious prince Neagoe Basarab (1512-1521) ruled in Romania, the Craioveşti rulers brought the skull of Saint Tatiana and the relics of Saint Gregory of Decapolite to Bistritsa Monastery. In 1955 the skull of Saint Tatiana was brought to the Cathedral of Saint Demetrios in Craiova, Romania. It is encased with the skulls of Sts. Sergius, Bacchus and Nephon of Constantinople.
