St. Catherine of Alexandria
Fifty pagan philosophers are said to have debated with St Catherine, hoping to convince her to abjure her faith. Instead, Catherine converted them to Christianity. Furious, the Emperor ordered her to be put to death on a spiked wheel; but the wheel broke. Eventually, she was martyred by beheading.
