→Ia the Teacher
===Ia the Teacher===
a math and religion teacher at the Orthodox Mission School, was away taken by the Boxers on [[June 11]], and severally slashed and beaten to near death and buried alive. A non-Christian sympathetic to her suffering, picked up her body and took her to his home and nursed her back to health. The Boxers, finding out Ia was still alive, arrested her yet again, and tortured her until her death, the Name of Christ on her lips as she died. St. Ia the Teacher is sometimes referred to as "Saint Ia the Twice-Martyred".
