Summary:
At a time when Europeans still longed to be Roman and were just learning to be Christian, two extraordinary holy women - Genovefa of Paris (ca. 420-502) and Brigit of Kildare (ca. 450-524) - began to roam their homelands. Both brought Christianity and romanitas (Roman-ness) to their people.
