Slain for their Faith

  • Slain for their Faith

For more than six centuries, Orthodox Christians suffered under the yoke of the Moslem Ottoman Empire. With the lowest status in a Moslem society, they endured a perpetual condition of inferiority and humiliation. For the slightest offense, they could be confronted with a choice between conversion to Islam, or torture and death. Thousands, more likely tens of thousands, were firm in their faith, even unto death. In this volume (a successor to the long out of print New Martyrs under the Turkish Yoke), somewhat more than a hundred of their stories are told. A large number of iconographic drawings and icon prints, an extensive glossary, maps and an exhaustive index flesh out the volume.



“It is with much joy that we are finally able to release this greatly amplified (more than a dozen lives have been added) and edited successor to the long out of print New Martyrs of the Turkish Yoke. Many of these saints have been hitherto unknown in English-speaking countries. Shocking and disturbing as are these accounts—the brutality of the Ottomans almost defies belief—it is not for ‘shock value’ that we publish them. Rather, it is for their astounding evidence of what is possible for the truly faithful (whether monastics or laymen), and as a much-needed antidote to the hedonistic, me-first, society in which we are doomed to live. Except those furnished by outside sources, all of the translations have been heavily revised, in some instances entirely rewritten, and the entire volume has been rigorously edited for consistency of style.” —“Preface”
