Dear list members,
I am currently working on the seven Maccabean martyrs (seven brothers)
commemorated on August 1. Chiefly, I am trying to find source material
(sermons, legends, etc) concerning them during the Crusades period. Has
run across such things in their work?
Further, I am tying this into Jewish use of these figures during the same
period. On that score I have some good leads but would be glad to hear of any
secondary works useful for building a methodology for assesing the use of
martyrs by the two traditions.
Thanks in advance
