NEO MARTYRS de la TURCOCRATIE

L'Église orthodoxe honore comme néo-martyrs des fidèles assassinés en haine de la foi au cours des derniers siècles, notamment quand des pays chrétiens sont tombés aux mains de pouvoirs criminels. Bon nombre de néo-martyrs sont des Grecs exécutés pour avoir refusé de se convertir à l'islam lors de l'occupation turque, ou pour être revenus au christianisme.

St. Zlata of Maglen: The Muslim Turks cast her into prison for three months, flogging her every day until her blood soaked the ground. Finally, they suspended her upside down and lit a fire, to suffocate her with the smoke; but God was with Zlata, and gave her strength in suffering. At last they hanged her from a tree and cut her into small pieces. Thus, this brave virgin gave her soul up to God, and went to dwell in Paradise on October 18, 1796.

New Martyr Theocharis from Neapolis,Cappadocia: In 1740, the Ottoman Empire was at war & Sultan Ahmet ordered that all the male children of Christians be taken off to army camps. Theochari was taken into service & kept his faith. The cadi's wife was so impressed with him, they wanted him to marry their daughter & convert to Islam, he refused. He was sentenced to death by starvation and later stoned him and hung him on a birch tree & now a place of pilgrimage for Christians and Muslims alike.
