Saint Agnes was a Roman virgin venerated in the fourth century. At the age of 13, the young Christian girl spurned the son of a prefect to keep her virginity. Refusing to abjure, she died as a martyr. Remember also Agnès, the adorable ingenue of the School of Women Molière, which marked the beginnings of Isabelle Adjani. Spread in the 60s, this classic has never disappeared, but is found more often in its Spanish form, Ines.
The Agnes are celebrated on January 21st.
