520 8  Annotation|bThis volume explores the fascinating 
       phenomenon of noble death through pagan, Jewish and 
       Christian sources. Today's society is uncomfortable with 
       death, and willingly submitting to a violent and 
       ostentatious death in public is seen as particularly 
       shocking and unusual. Yet classical sources give a 
       different view, with public self-sacrifice often being 
       applauded. The Romans admired a heroic end in the 
       battlefield or the arena, suicide in the tradition of 
       Socrates was something laudable, and Christians and Jews 
       alike faithfully commemorated their heroes who died during
       religious persecutions. The cross-cultural approach and 
       wide chronological range of this study make it valuable 
       for students and scholars of ancient history, religion and
       literature.
