FUHRMANN, S.. Traditions of martyrdom in the Ignatian Letters. In Skriflig (Online) [online]. 2011, vol.45, n.2-3, pp.689-706. ISSN 2305-0853.

The letters of Ignatius represent one of the key texts for the emergence of martyrdom during the second century ad in Christianity. This article is concerned with the question whether Ignatius contributed to a "theology of martyrdom" or whether he rather relied on previous traditions. The author argues, by undertaking an analysis of certain pragmatics and semantics, that the motif of martyrdom is solely used to buttress Ignatius' claim for authority among his intended addressees by referring to an understanding of martyrdom that has its roots in the New Testament. An identification of the author of the letters with a historical martyr is regarded as unlikely.
