Martyrdoms Sayings By Teresa Morgan: The claim at the heart of this book has been carefully researched by several generations The claim at the heart of this book has been carefully researched by several generations of scholars and is orthodox in academic circles, if not beyond. Christians under the Roman Empire were neither constantly persecuted nor martyred in huge numbers for their faith.

Martyrdoms Sayings By Simon Sebag Montefiore: The Bolsheviks were atheists but they were hardly secular politicians in the conventional sense: they The Bolsheviks were atheists but they were hardly secular politicians in the conventional sense: they stooped to kill from the smugness of the highest moral eminence.

And in the former, as in the latter, there's a certain sensuality ... — Fernando Pessoa
Martyrdoms Sayings By Reinhold Niebuhr: The morality of the church is anachronistic. Will it ever develop a moral insight and The morality of the church is anachronistic.

If we knew the world in which we live a little better we would perish in shame or be overcome by a sense of futility. — Reinhold Niebuhr
