Mitchell looks at specific examples---including the murder of the archbishop of Canterbury in 1170, the burning of Jeanne d'Arc in 1431, and recent deaths in the Middle East---to show how the term is understood in a range of historical, religious, and cultural contexts. 168 pages, softcover from Oxford University.
