Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0230516920, Hardcover)

This book explores the late medieval English cults which evolved around "political martyrs"--men who had been violently killed in political circumstances and were later venerated, though never canonized. By examining these cults using various types of sources the richness of political culture in the period is revealed, and insights offered into the ways in which belief, worship, social and civic identities, and political language and practice were continuously constructed and re-constructed in fourteenth and fifteenth century English society.
