"This volume aims at offering undergraduate students in various disciplines (religion, classics, Jewish studies, etc.) a survey of ancient sources about those kinds of"noble death" that can be called martyrdom or are rather similar to martyrdom...as a sourcebook, it has fuller introductions to the texts than most... "New Testament Abstracts March 2003 _."Reseña del editor:
This volume explores the fascinating phenomenon of noble death through pagan, Jewish and Christian sources. Today's society is uncomfortable with death, and willingly submitting to a violent and ostentatious death in public is seen as particularly shocking and unusual. Yet classical sources give a different view, with public self-sacrifice often being applauded. The Romans admired a heroic end in the battlefield or the arena, suicide in the tradition of Socrates was something laudable, and Christians and Jews alike faithfully commemorated their heroes who died during religious persecutions. The cross-cultural approach and wide chronological range of this study make it valuable for students and scholars of ancient history, religion and literature.
