Fools, Martyrs, Traitors: The Story of Martyrdom in the Western World
Lacey Baldwin Smith. This engrossing exploration of martyrdom examines one of the most baffling characteristics of the human species: its willingness to die to sanctify a deity, to defend a cause, or simply to prove a point. In telling the stories of his chosen martyrs, by delving into their psyches, politics, & remarkable personalities, Smith illuminates the complex & elusive subject of martyrdom as it has evolved over two & a half millennia. He discusses Socrates; Judaic & early Christian martyrs: the Maccabees & their heroic suffering; Jesus of Nazareth; St. Perpetua; English Archbishop Thomas Becket; Sir Thomas More; & the Protestant martyrs under Catholic Mary Tudor. Also covers modern martyrdom as it has become increasingly entangled with treason.
