Victoria a Christian martyr of the Dioclesian persecution (A.D. 284-312), was a native of an inland town in Numidia. She was one of a band of Christians who had met in the house of a church reader, and were seized and brought to Carthage to be arraigned before the tribunal of the proconsul. Her father and brother were still pagans; and her brother, upon her refusal to go with him, claimed that she was not in her right mind. "This is my mind," replied she, "and I have not altered it." She died in triumphant faith. See Neander, Hist. of the Church, 1, 152.
