Catherine of Genoa

Birthdate: 5. April 1447
Date of death: 15. September 1510

Catherine of Genoa was an Italian Roman Catholic saint and mystic, admired for her work among the sick and the poor and remembered because of various writings describing both these actions and her mystical experiences. She was a member of the noble Fieschi family, and spent most of her life and her means serving the sick, especially during the plague which ravaged Genoa in 1497 and 1501. She died in that city in 1510.

Her fame outside her native city is connected with the publication in 1551 of the book known in English as the Life and Doctrine of Saint Catherine of Genoa.She and her teaching were the subject of Baron Friedrich von Hügel's classic work The Mystical Element of Religion .
