Picha takatifu ya Mt. Isidora.

Isidora Mpumbavu (baada ya 300 - kabla ya 365) alikuwa bikira wa Misri aliyejiunga na monasteri ya Tabenna alipotenda kama kwamba ni kichaa.[1] [2]

Habari zake zimeripotiwa hasa katika kitabu Historia Lausiaca[3] kilichoandikwa na Palladius wa Galatia miaka 419-420.

Mfano wake wa kujinyenyekesha uliathiri sana Mababu wa jangwani na vizazi vilivyofuata, hasa Urusi.[4]

Tangu kale anaheshimiwa na Wakatoliki na Waorthodoksi kama mtakatifu.

Sikukuu yake huadhimishwa tarehe 1 Mei.[5]
