Usage examples of "aurea".

There is one woman in particular, a servant who calls herself Aurea, who is no better than a goad on the flail wielded by the Enemy.

Strange that he should mention Aurea, to whom she had spoken up in the attic only two days before.

Hadn't Aurea spoken almost exactly JXATE tLLIOTT those same words: "an Eagle might see all kinds of things"?

Only Fortu-natus and Aurea seemed constructed of sterner stuff, less likely to shatter if a cataclysm wrenched them.

By the Dead Man's Gate they found Aurea and two of the young sisters waiting with a mule, a broken-backed nag of a mare, and a handcart in which the young brothers had already laid Sister Rosvita most tenderly, cushioning her on a blanket and covering her with another.

It was too dark to see anything beyond their line of march: the three girls behind her, then Jerome and Jehan leading a goat, and, last, the servant woman, Aurea, with Hanna's staff gripped in her hands.

By the time they had her hauled up on the ledge, Rosvita and Jerome, too, had collapsed panting on the narrow terrace, and Ruoda and Fortunatus were most of the way up the ladder with Aurea just beginning to climb.

As Fortunatus heaved Aurea up and over onto the ledge, the first rider got within arrow shot.

Fortunatus and Aurea reeled up the ladder and cast it against the baskets while the riders huddled out of arrow shot, unwilling to expose themselves further.

The basket bobbed against the wall somewhat above and to the side of Aurea, and it scraped and jostled the rock as it was hauled upward.

Teuda and Aurea brought up the rear, shepherding Sister Petra, who showed a tendency to stray if she were not led.

Sister Diocletia and Aurea were in the next chamber massaging Mother Obligatia's withered limbs, a duty done in privacy.

At first only Hilaria, Diocletia, Aurea, and Hanna had the strength to complete the climb, but eventually every one of them except Petra and Mother Obligatia could negotiate those stairs.

Teuda and Aurea were washing shifts in a bucket of water, now gray with dust, and chatting com-panionably as Aurea labored to improve her Dariyan.

The capital Aurea, its hinterland, communities the length of the Highroad River as far as the Phosphoric Ocean, no few of the settlements scattered elsewhere, had grown used to him.
