The Life of Our Holy Mother Theodora the Nun, Who Suffered in the Guise of a Man -- MP3 Download
Theodora, a married woman in Alexandria, was lured into adultery when she was told that even God cannot see what happens at night. Repentant, she disguised herself as a man and entered a men's monastery, where her husband would not find her. Later, she was accused of seducing a young woman, and expelled from the monastery to raise the infant she had supposedly begotten. After her death, it was discovered that she was a woman, and therefore could not be the father. Saint Demetrius of Rostov recounts the strange adventures through which Saint Theodora's soul was redeemed from her grievous sin.
