Part of Belief and Beyond Belief

Delve into the beliefs that martyrs die for with a panel of experts.

From Socrates to Sikhism, Jesus Christ and Thomas More, martyrs come in many forms and often go on to become examples of their causes or beliefs for centuries to come.

A panel of historians, religious leaders and experts talk through the history and morality of martyrdom, and try to distinguish differences between ancient martyrs who refused to renounce their faith in the face of opposition, from religiously motivated terrorism.
