Columba of Rieti (1467-1501) was beatified by the Catholic Church in 1625. She practiced anoxeria mirabilis, wore a hairshirt, and slept on thorns as acts of mortification. She belonged to the Domincan order and served as a prioress in the city of Perugia for eleven years. The nuns from the Convent of Santa Rosa in Puebla, Mexico are credited with inventing the recipe for mole poblano.
