Description - Witnesses for Christ by Nomikos Michael Vaporis

This, however, is not simply a collection of hagiographic stories. Here, the lives are retold and set in an historical context to make them more accessible to the reader. Also, there are translations provided of the dialogue between the neomartyrs and the Ottoman judges (kadi) during the three interrogations that were mandated by Islamic law. These records provide information on mutual perceptions and the clash between Orthodox and Islamic cultures, illustrating how the Ottomans became decreasingly tolerant of Orthodox Christians as their empire declined.

Buy Witnesses for Christ by Nomikos Michael Vaporis from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
