Abstract (English)
In the introductory part, the authors remind us of existence of two groups of Saint-Patrons, who are celebrated in the Christian tradition as saint-protectors against some diseases and protecting some professions, especially those that are connected with medical activities. In the second part, inspired by the tragic fate of the Sister of Charity, medical nun Agostina Pieatrantoni (1864-1894), whose life was cruelly ended at the hands of a mentally disturbed patient. The authors here launch an initiative for her to be proclaimed a patroness-of all nurses, especially after she was beatified in 1972 and canonized in 1999.
