Languages of publication
The article presents martyrdom in the Catholic Church in the modern era (16th-18th century) in some European countries. Besides socio-political and national factors, divisions and breaks among Christians in the years 1054 and 1517 had tragic consequences on the persecution of Catholics. The author not only illustrates persecutions of Catholics and mentions the most famous martyrs in that era, but also points out regulations and laws, which oppressed and discriminated against Catholics in social, political and economical life.
