Is there life after martyrdom?

The latest AJS Perspectives includes a series of short articles on martyrdom, that undying topic with its indefatigable scholars. Robert Chazan writes there, as well as in the April 2009 issue of Speculum (on milleniarism and the First Crusade). Perspectives also contains a survey by Heidi Lerner of important Jewish Studies blogs, including yours truly.

Here's a new journal. Some more martyrdom, some interesting studies of Hazal, modern stuff, I don't think there's anything medieval.
