About this book

This book explores the late medieval English cults which evolved around 'political martyrs'. By examining these cults the richness of political culture is revealed, and insights offered into the ways in which belief, worship, social and civic identities, and political language and practice were continuously constructed and re-constructed.

Reviews

'Piroyansky makes good use of chronicles and hagiographies as well as prayers and poems but she also effectively utilises manuscript illuminations, paintings, sculpture and stained glass windows. In doing so, Piroyansky has provided the fullest account of the political martyrs and their cults. Some of her observations and arguments have important ramifications for understanding the process of canonisation and cult formation in late medieval Europe. This volume should be read by anyone interested not only in martyrdom and sanctity but in late medieval Christianity itself... This volume should be read by anyone interested not only in martyrdom and sanctity but in late medieval Christianity itself.'

- Thomas S. Freeman, Journal of Ecclesiastical History
