The cult of Saint Agatha arrived in Pisa probably with the liberation of Catania from the Saracens: the first certain attestation is in the privilege with which Pope Honorius II on 21 July 1126 extended to the archbishop of Pisa the use of the pallium in the solemnity of Saint Agatha, on 5 February. For that feast and the following two days the alleged skull of the saint was exposed, still preserved in the church of San Paolo a Ripa d'Arno: the event still aroused at the end of the nineteenth century great competition of mothers engaged in breastfeeding. The importance of the cult is also evidenced by the octagonal oratory named after her, erected within the monastic complex around the middle of the twelfth century.
