    Martyrdom's Would-Be Myth Buster.Scott Atran - 2014 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 37 (4):362-363.
    Lankford overgeneralizes individual psychology from limited, fragmentary and doubtful materials, and underplays strategic, ideological, and group dynamical factors. His speculative claims manifest a form of fundamental attribution error: the tendency – especially evident in popular attachment to moral presumptions of individual responsibility and volition – to overestimate effects of personality and underestimate situational effects in explaining social behavior. The book's appeal may owe more to ideological preference than to interests of science or national security.

    Assisted Death and Martyrdom.D. C. Thomasma - 1998 - Christian Bioethics 4 (2):122-142.
    Against the backdrop of ancient, mediaeval and modern Catholic teaching prohibiting killing (the rule against killing), the question of assisted suicide and euthanasia is examined. In the past the Church has modified its initial repugnance for killing by developing specific guidelines for permitting killing under strict conditions. This took place with respect to capital punishment and a just war, for example. One wonders why in the least objectionable instance, when a person is already dying, suffering, and repeatedly requesting assistance in (...)

    Martyrdom: A Philosophical Perspective.N. Verbin - 2012 - Philosophical Investigations 35 (1):68-87.
    Martyrdom has played and continues to play a dominant role in the religious imagination of many. Jews and Christians alike conceive of their martyrs as exceptional people of faith who express exceptional love and devotion to God. The purpose of this paper is to explore some of the conceptual features of martyrdom by virtue of which it has its role and to show, using those very features and using Simone Weil's observations, that martyrdom cannot mark the logical (...)

  7. Martyrdom and Terrorism: Pre-Modern to Contemporary Perspectives.Dominic Janes & Alex Houen (eds.) - 2014 - Oxford University Press USA.
    In recent years, terrorism has become closely associated with martyrdom in the minds of many terrorists and in the view of nations around the world. In Islam, martyrdom is mostly conceived as "bearing witness" to faith and God. Martyrdom is also central to the Christian tradition, not only in the form of Christ's Passion or saints faced with persecution and death, but in the duty to lead a good and charitable life. In both religions, the association of (...)

  8. Martyrdom and Sacrifice in a Time of Terror.Mark Juergensmeyer - 2008 - Social Research: An International Quarterly 75 (2):417-434.
    This article is organized around the idea that the concept of sacrifice gains meaning within the context of cosmic war. Cosmic war is understood as arising out of religious traditions in terms of an intimate and ultimate tension, as Durkheim pointed out, between the sacred and the profane. This fundamental dichotomy gives rise to images of a great encounter between cosmic forces—order versus chaos, good versus evil, truth versus falsehood—that worldly struggles mimic. Thus the idea of cosmic war is compelling (...)

  10. Can Martyrdom Survive Secularization?Lacey Baldwin Smith - 2008 - Social Research: An International Quarterly 75 (2):435-460.
    Can Martyrdom survive Secularization? is a survey of martyrdom in western society starting with the early Christian martyrs, and narrating its increasing politicization and secularization in more modern times. It argues that martyrdom is a two way street: the courage of men and women in the face of torture and death and the willingness of society to grant them the title of martyr. It recounts the careers of John Brown and his death on a Virginia gallows in (...)

  12. Martyrdom, Sacrifice, and Political Memory in El Salvador.Anna L. Peterson & Brandt G. Peterson - 2008 - Social Research: An International Quarterly 75 (2):511-542.
    Themes of Christian martyrdom were central to popular political mobilization in El Salvador, as in much of Latin America, during the 1970s and 1980s. The story of Christ's sacrifice provided a powerful narrative for explaining injustice and political violence, a frame for interpretation as well as action during the twelve-year Salvadoran civil war, which ended in 1992 by a negotiated settlement. In the first part of this article we trace the politics of martyrdom and sacrifice through the war. (...)

    A Cultural-Psychological Theory of Contemporary Islamic Martyrdom.C. Dominik Güss, Ma Teresa Tuason & Vanessa B. Teixeira - 2007 - Journal for the Theory of Social Behaviour 37 (4):415–445.
    What political, economic, religious, and emotional factors are involved in a person's decision to kill civilians and military personnel through the sacrifice of his or her own life? Data for this research were secondary analyses of interviews with Islamic martyrs, as well as their leaders’ speeches. This investigation into the cultural-psychological explanations for Islamic martyrdom leads to a model explaining a person's decision to carry out the mission as resulting from a combination of four factors: the historical-cultural context, group (...)

    Martyrdom and Persecution in the Early Church. [REVIEW]A. J. W. - 1969 - Review of Metaphysics 23 (1):129-130.
    Frend's thesis about the origins of Christendom is that "Christianity came up from below." Christianity had its greatest impact and appeal on the lower classes of the Greco-Roman world. The earliest Christians had little influence upon the classical literature of the first century. But there were institutional and ideological influences among the lowest social order that were substantial. Archaeological research and discovery have amplified the kind of everyday life that the Christians lived. Frend looks at Christianity primarily as a social (...)

    Is Martyrdom Virtuous?Patrick Clark - 2010 - Journal of the Society of Christian Ethics 30 (1):141-159.
    IN HIS NICOMACHEAN ETHICS, ARISTOTLE ARGUES THAT MOST DEATHS are contemptible and offer no opportunity for the exercise of virtue. Thomas Aquinas, on the other hand, considers the publicly shameful death of the martyr to be not only the highest exemplification of the virtue of courage but also the greatest proof of moral perfection more generally. What accounts for this substantial divergence from Aristotle on the possibility of virtuous action in death? This essay investigates the theologically informed metaphysical and anthropological (...)

  32. Locke, Martyrdom, and the Disciplinary Power of the Church.Jennifer A. Herdt - 2003 - Journal of the Society of Christian Ethics 23 (2):19-35.
    While refraining from merely reinscribing liberal hagiographies of Locke, this essay questions recent accounts of Locke as facilitator of an insidious subordination of church to state in the early modern period. Locke's defense of toleration and the claims of conscience represent the recovery of key aspects of Christian charity, not the subordination of church to state, and his conception of church membership as voluntary serves as a salutary reminder that loyalty cannot ultimately be coerced, but resides in a bond of (...)
