about

November's randomly selected topic is "Wilgefortis", plucked from Robertson Davies' novel "Fifth Business".

"Her home ground, so to speak, was Portugal, and she was reputed to have been the daughter of a Portuguese king...who betrothed her to the King of Sicily...
She was a Christian and had made a vow of virginity and when she prayed for assistance in keeping it, she miraculously grew a HEAVY BEARD. The Sicilian king refused to have her and her angry father caused her to be crucified."

"Commonly called Wilgefortis...but honored under the names of...Ontkommena"

"...her legend might be a persistence of the hermaphrodite figure of the great mother, who was long worshipped in Cyprus and Carthage."

November's Charity is Girls Not Brides
