St. Margaret belongs, along with St. Barbara, St. Catherine and the
St. Dorothea to the four Virgines Capitales.
In art history, these four virgins are often used together or with the JVirgin Mary depicted in the center of a painting. In some cases, instead of the classical imagery with Dorothea, St. Ursula is also shown, or even just her attribute, the arrow, in the hand of St. Dorothea. This Christian representation of the four virgins is a form of the type Virgo inter virgines, which shows Mary in the circle of virgin martyrs.Margaret is the patron saint of peasants in pregnancy, women in childbirth and virgins.
