Item description for The Maccabean Martyrs As Saviours of the Jewish People: A Study of 2 and 4 Maccabees (Supplements to the Journal for the Study of Judaism, V. 57) by J. W. Van Henten...

This volume deals with the presentation of Maccabean martyrs and the elder Razis in 2 and 4 Maccabees, discussing the religious, the political, as well as the philosophical aspects of noble death in these writings. It argues that the theme of martyrdom is a very important part of the self-image of the Jews as presented by the authors of both works. The first part of the book discusses the sources and the second part deals with the descriptions of noble death. This section of the book also offers extensive discussions of related non-Jewish traditions which highlight the political-patriotic dimension of noble death as described in 2 and 4 Maccabees.
