about this item

While Christians seek to promote life, says Clark, they also venerate the brutal torture and death of the person they believe to be the source and highest exemplification of life. He asks how particular conceptions of death influence and respond to corresponding conceptions of human virtue and perfection, and seeks his answer in the account of martyrdom given by Thomas Aquinas, In particular, he questions whether one can plausibly claim martyrdom to be an act of virtue in any recognizably Aristotelian sense.
