Name Day of the Barbara — the history of the saints and a short description
According to the ancient Russian version of the origin, the name was formed from the Russian “barbarian” during the Slavic times, and over time took the form of the name Barbara.
Brief description of a person
Being small, Barbara shy of his name. In appearance, the girl is very similar to her father, so we can say that she is more “father’s daughter.”
He does not like to do something, and can take time off from work, often sending cases to the back office.
As a child, she can often be ashamed of her name, and will lament the fact that her parents called her that way. Because of this, she may develop complexes that will be pursued throughout her life.
Growing up, Barbara goes to live in her fictional world, where she has the opportunity to rule and reign. In general, the owner of the name is calm and friendly rather than on the contrary, she has enough good friends, but she will not completely trust them.
Often she may seem detached, and therefore it is just as difficult to trust her.
She is characterized by diligence and prudence. Definitely, her inner world is often much brighter than the outer one, she is very impressionable, and often presents herself as one who is not, or one who wants to be.
She has a natural sense of art, and she always notices what is beautiful.
She does not possess strong intuition, but often uses it to realize her life intentions. A woman loves intrigue, and for their sake is able to make a deal with conscience.
Thanks to this, Barbara easily uses the people around her for her own purposes.
Most likely, she will marry the one who first offers love to the grave; and all because in her heart she believes that she can re-educate him. But it also happens that the process of re-education is impossible, and because of this, it can become very evil and grumpy.
Whatever they say, and in the second marriage Varvara blooms.
Stories of Saints
Saint Barbara Iliopolskaya is the most famous patroness of this name. It is revered by Christians as a great martyr, it is recognized that the saint protects from violent and unexpected death.
Many geographic locations were named after her, and even asteroid 234 Barbara discovered in 1883.
Her place of residence was Iliopol, a Phoenician. Dioskur — her parent, was an aristocrat of Asia Minor and served at the court of Emperor Maximilian.
Varvara had the charm and attractiveness, and therefore the parent sharpened it in the tower, away from the views of strangers and strangers.
Being imprisoned, and exploring the surrounding space and the world from the windows of the tower, the girl came to the conclusion that such beauty should have one and only Creator. It was time for a possible marriage, and the father allowed his daughter to leave the tower.
Barbara used this opportunity, and found Christians in the city, and took part in the rite of baptism.
Dioskur learned about the religion of his daughter, and he himself, being a pagan, became enraged, and took her to Martian, the ruler of the city, to make her give up on her beliefs. Barbara was beaten with oxen veins and a hair shirt was put on her and rubbed her wounds, burned with fire, but could not break the girl’s spirit.
Then the ruler gave Dioscura the opportunity to trial his daughter.
He gave his consent to be the executioner for Varvara and cut off her head. At the same time, Saint Juliana, who, seeing the torment Barbara endures in the name of her faith, was openly declared herself a Christian.
Cara overtook Dioscura, and Martiana in the form of lightning.
Later, the relics of the holy martyr were transported around the world. Part of the relics is currently located in the Vladimir Cathedral, which in Kiev, the left foot was taken away in 1943 by Bishop Panteleimon in the city of Edmonton, in Canada, and the left hand is in the city of Lutsk in the Church of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross.
Martyr Barbara is the sister of the Marfo-Mariinsky Monastery, which was formed and opened by the Grand Duchess of the reigning Romanov family, Elizaveta Fedorovna.
About its origin almost nothing is known. There is an assumption that Barbara was the wife of the family of D. V. Yakovlev belonging to an approximate imperial court.
She may have cared for the wounded, for which she received the Red Cross award.
In 1910, she may have become one of the 17 cross sisters, including Elizabeth Feodorovna, who swore an oath of not yielding, obedience and chastity in the absence of monastic tonsure. Nevertheless, the fact that she became one of the first sisters, that they became part of the Marfo-Mariinsky Convent is known quite clearly.
Barbara entered the monastery, having come from the royal court, and took over the duties of the princess’s ke-louse, to be constantly present at her.
When in 1918 the princess was poisoned to Perm into exile, she and Sister Catherine went after Elizabeth. After the transfer of the princess to Yekaterinburg, she still stayed with her, despite attempts to persuade the authorities.
Barbara agreed to fully share the fate prepared by the arrested.
Barbara was killed on the night of the execution of the royal family. They threw her into an iron ore mine, and then threw the mine with grenades.
The saint died at the bottom of the mine from hunger and severe wounds in a couple of days.
She was found a few months later by members of the administration of Admiral Kolchak, and transported together with other remains of princes, hiding from the Bolsheviks. The body was buried in Beijing, in the crypt of the Seraphim temple.
Elizaveta Fyodorovna wanted her buried in the holy land, and after some time the body of her and other martyrs, including Barbara, were sent to Jerusalem and solemnly met by Princess Victoria, Russian immigrants and clergy.
