Ebba of Codingham
Saints – Occult World
In Christian legend, martyr, abbess.
Feast, 2 April.
When the Danes invaded her land, Ebba, fearful that all of her nuns would be raped, cut off her nose and upper lip to make herself unattractive.
Her nuns followed her example and also cut off their noses and disfigured themselves.
When the Danes arrived and saw the noseless nuns, their anger flared, and they set the convent on fire, burning the nuns inside.
