St. Dymphna


St. Dymphna was an Irish princess born to a pagan father and a Christian mother. When her mother died her father went into a deep depression and vowed to never marry another woman unless she was as beautiful as his deceased wife. When she came of age St. Dymphna took a vow of chastity out of her great love for Christ ,but her father had been driven mad by his depression and noticed her beauty. He decided to take his own daughter as his bride and a fearful Dymphna escaped Ireland with her local priest, the king's fool, and two servants. They escaped to Belgium, however her father was able to trace her by the coins she had brought with her and was spending to survive. Her father found her and demanded she submit to his unholy will and when she refused he beheaded her with his own sword. St Dymphna is the patroness of those who suffer from depression and anxiety, psychologists and neurologists and victims of incest.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you ship outside of the US

Not at this time

Why is the shipping on your 8 x 10's so expensive? Do you combine shipping on 8 x 10's?

Due to how Etsy charges for listings, all of my poster sizes are placed in the same listing for one image (these are called variants). Etsy does not allow multiple shipping prices for variants. This is why 8 x 10's are priced at .25 cents (my cost to ship) and ship at the same price as the other posters which is $5.00 (the actual price of the 8 x 10's)
