"Written in a mood of total austerity; and yet the passion of the book is perpetually beating up against its seemingly barren surface. . . . I am deeply moved." -Philip Roth During the early weeks of the Korean War, Captain Lee, a young South Korean officer, is ordered to investigate the kidnapping and mass murder of North Korean ministers by Communist forces. For propaganda purposes, the priests are declared martyrs, but as he delves into the crime, Lee finds himself asking: What if they were not martyrs? What if they renounced their faith in the face of death, failing both God and country? Should the people be fed this lie? Part thriller, part mystery, part existential treatise, The Martyred is a stunning meditation on truth, religion, and faith in times of crisis.

The Martyred Inquisitor The Life and Cult of Peter of Verona 1252

This work therefore fills a very important gap, in both thirteenth century hagiographical studies, and studies of the interrelationship of heresy and imperial politics in the mid-thirteenth century.

Peter Martyr was one of the central Dominican saints of the thirteenth century, in some cases eclipsing Dominic himself. Born in Verona around 1206 to those with Cathar sympathies, he became a convert to Catholicism. As one of the first generations of Dominicans, he represents aspects of their primitive history both as a spellbinding preacher and as one of the earliest and most famous papal inquisitors. In 1252, shortly after his official appointment to the post of inquisitor for Lombardy, Peter was assassinated at the hands of a cabal of Milanese heretics. That there is no modern monograph on Peter represents a considerable lacuna in the study of medieval saints. This work therefore fills a very important gap, in both thirteenth century hagiographical studies, and studies of the interrelationship of heresy and imperial politics in the mid-thirteenth century. The first half of the book is a systematic study of the stages in the life, miracles and posthumous cult of Peter of Verona. Part One deals with many controversial issues of Peter's life, such as his role in the growth of the Dominican order and related confraternities in Lombardy and Tuscany, his status as papal inquisitor and his preaching. Part Two explores the cult of Peter Martyr. The brief time which elapsed between death and canonization makes Peter Martyr an especially interesting case in the field of cult study as for him, life led immediately to cult: a cult dominated by those who knew him personally. The second half of the book is a translation into English of the major primary sources concerning Peter. These will be of interest to students of papal canonization, the Dominican order, the Inquisition, hagiography, and local history.

In ardent dedication to defend civil liberties, the author speaks from the viewpoint of a progressive conservative aiming to resolve injustices placed upon the vulnerable, defenseless, & disadvantaged. In effort to propel a voice of the majority of citizens who have no podium for projecting, no platform infrastructure for representational campaigning, & have felt the pain of being denied the basic rights that our forefathers founded this nation upon, the author bluntly examines the areas of organizational structure of Supremacist holding that prevents citizens from maintaining and upholding equal rights & freedoms. Despite growing up in the Midwest under conservative morals & standards of living, the author developed her own sense of logical understanding of how religious organizations, governmental structures, & societal legalities are utilized to persuade mass control of citizens within the realms of national, state, & local county regulations. In experiencing her own personal injustices within governmental systems, the author is able to analyze & determine potential resolutions & outlines for intervention against denied liberties. Her perspective applies the solution of common sense to complex concerns where impracticality & abuse of authority are being grossly applied. Through personal hardship & in joining other advocates in civil rights’ defense, the author is empowered in independent thinking, a progressive Conservative outlook, & a mindset of equality. As an Elementary school teacher who has fought her home State’s CPS system for 4 years in effort to reunify with her only son, her voice of determined victory against gross injustices is conveyed.

If you slip between the cracks of reality, just beyond the limits of sanity, you would find yourself in the forgotten realms of Bliss and Chaos. Through dreams and madness, humans have often ventured within the two realms. Seldom do people leave with their memories intact, and as a result what is left is the fleeting imprint of a dream. Stanley is not so fortunate. Utterly lost and unable to remember anything, his one beacon of hope is a vision of a woman in a burning tower calling to him. It does not take long for Stanley to discover he is not alone. A city nearby is occupied by beautiful Beings who take care of the humans that dwell there. Furthermore, the Beings ensure their humans are well-kept within their chains, cages, and butcher shops. Locked away in the castle tower as a war trophy, Former-Queen Giselle places her hand on her swelling belly. War and plague ravaged her kingdom and enslaved her citizens, and there was nothing she could do. However, there was someone who could. "Hurry, Stanley....."

What would you do for the cross of Christ? For two thousand years, Christians have courageously triumphed over beatings, stonings, burnings, wild beasts, and every form of evil to boldly proclaim one truth: the name of Jesus. Voices of the Martyrs AD 33 – Today is their story and your Christian heritage. In the 16th century, English preacher John Foxe created what would later be called the “second most important book in history” after the Bible: Foxe’s Book of Martyrs. With dozens of images, modernized English, and up-to-date accounts, Foxe: Voices of the Martyrs faithfully binds the testimonies of more than 50 of Foxe’s heroes from the Early Church to the Reformation with Christians in the Enlightenment, the Industrial Revolution, and through the twentieth century. More importantly, Foxe: Voices of the Martyrs unites past Christians with believers today. Building on over fifty years of ministry to persecuted Christians, The Voice of the Martyrs organization shares sixty-seven stories of Christians who have stood faithfully to the death since 2000. Their courage in the face of ISIS and the Taliban, brutal dictatorships, and government crackdowns will inspire you to boldness and remind you that the same Spirit of Christ Who strengthened Stephen, Peter, and Paul is at work in you today.

Fantastic portmanteu featuring the stoic warriors of the Adepta Sororitas. To die in the name of the God-Emperor of Mankind is to live eternal, and none are more willing to bleed in His name than the Adepta Sororitas – the Sisters of Battle. The Book of Martyrs charts the deaths of these exemplars. Sister Ishani of the Orders Hospitaller, serving alongside the death-obsessed Valorous Heart, tends to her Ecclesiarchy charges as something inhuman hunts the fields. Sister Anarchia of the Order of Our Martyred Lady, taken captive by the vile T’au Empire, seeks to teach her interrogators what it truly means to be one of the faithful. On a regressed Imperial world, Sister Superior Laurelyn of the Order of the Bloody Rose reinforces the beleaguered defenders against a familiar foe turned anew by the Great Rift. And in the age of the Indomitus Crusade, with the galaxy split in two, only one thing is certain – there will be no shortage of martyrs to fill the pages of this ancient tome.
