The Purple Crown: The Politics of Martyrdom

Tripp York

  • 1899


The Purple Crown exhibits how Christianity's ultimate act of witnessing, martyrdom, is an inherently political act. The author argues that the path of Christianity leads to a confrontation with the same powers that crucified Jesus. York explores this theme historically, theologically, and through biography, such as in the recent martyr Oscar Romero. (199pp. index. Herald Press, 2007.)
