Martyrs of Spain

EARLY CHRISTIAN HISTORY is full of accounts of the slaughter of Christians, but the 20th century was by far the most savage. Slowly, the martyrology of that bloodiest of centuries is being written.

See the article "Martyrs of Spain, Pray for Us!" by Andrew Cusack.

Thousands were killed for the crime of being bourgeois, or merely for living quiet lives in monasteries.
