'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...
