Melania was born into a very devout and wealthy family. She suffered an illness during giving birth and she and her husband vowed to live in chastity if God would preserve her. She survived and with her husband they traveled throughout many lands. In Egypt they learned much from the desert fathers. They finally settled on the Mt. of Olives. She closed herself off in seclusion for fourteen years. Later she went to Constantinople and then returned and reposed on the Mt. of Olives at the age of fifty-seven.
