Martyrium (architecture) A martyrium (Latin) or martyrion (ancient Greek) (plural, "martyries" or "martyria") is a church of a specific architectural form, centered on a central element and thus built on a central plan, that is, of a circular or sometimes octagonal or cruciform shape.
Martyrium (architecture) The same form was later adopted by the early Islamic architecture, who employed it in the creation of a shrine known as the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem, built much in the style of the Constantinian rotunda of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, which it was supposed to create a "dialog of shrines" with, while looking down on it from a dominant position (the Temple Mount).
Martyrium (architecture) The origin of the name of the Christian martyrium is as follows: Ancient Greek "martys", "witness", to "martyrion", "testimony", to Late and Ecclesiastical Latin "martyrium".
Martyrium (album) Martyrium is the first recorded and second released studio album by the Norwegian unblack metal band Antestor. It is one of the earliest Christian extreme metal albums released in Norway. Recorded in 1994, "Martyrium" was not immediately released, though bootleg copies of the album were printed in 1997 by Morphine Records. It then gained a cult following among a small audience until it was officially released in March 2000 by Endtime Productions.
Martyrium (architecture) The architectural form of the martyrium has been developed from Roman architecture, mainly based on imperial mausolea. Constantine the Great applied it for the tomb of Jesus at the Anastasis in Jerusalem (ca. 326-380s) and the Apostles' Church in Constantinople, while also erecting round mausolea for himself and his daughters. The first step towards creating a church based on an imperial mausoleum was made around 320, when Constantine connected what was supposed to become his own mausoleum, with a church structure.
Martyrium (album) Originally Torodd Fuglesteg, head of the infamous Arctic Serenade Records, sent Antestor to studio to record "Martyrium". At the time having problems with signing the band Groms for Arctic Serenades' roster, Fuglesteg said: "I was also in touch with Antestor at that time and I sent them into studio to do their Martyrium album. This album was later released through another label. I regarded, and still regard, Antestor as much darker than Groms, which was a happy-smiles band." "Martyrium" was recorded at Norsk Lydskole in December 1994, remixed in February 1995, and was produced by Jon Ove Andersen and Antestor. Some problems occurred and in 1997, another label called Morphine Records ended up releasing only 50 bootleg copies of the album. However, tape copies circulated in up to fifth generation copies and their audience grew fast. Michael Bryzak writes in the liner notes of "The Defeat of Satan / Despair" compilation album (2003) that, although the first album was not officially released until 2000, ""Martyrium" was rightfully considered a cult classic."
Martyrium (architecture) The oldest Christian martyria were built at "a site which bears witness to the Christian faith, either by referring to an event in Christ's life or Passion, or by sheltering the grave of a martyr". Martyria, mostly small, were very common after the early 4th century, when Constantine became the first emperor to make the Nicene Creed the dominant religion of the Roman Empire. Martyria had no standard architectural plan, and are found in a wide variety of designs. There was often a sunken floor, or part of it, to bring the faithful closer to the remains of the saint, and a small opening, the "fenestella", going from the altar-stone to the grave itself.
Martyrium (album) Musically, "Martyrium" leans toward a combination of death metal, doom metal and black metal. The guitar playing emphasizes on tremolo riffs, and sometimes on slow doom metal riffs; the drumming ranges from down-tempo to mid-paced arrangements. Martyr's (Kjetil Molnes) vocals are mostly guttural, blackened death grunts and sometimes higher growls. Several songs showcase progressive elements: "Depressed" begins with a grand piano solo followed by "orthodoxly sung funeral dirge." "Thoughts" begins with a 2-minute funeral mass organ solo, before the blackened death/doom output turns in. The song "Mercy Lord" showcases operatic, uncredited female vocals and cites the Psalm 51. "Searching" was featured on Cross Rhythms Music's "Extreme Music Sampler volume 4" compilation album. "Mercy Lord", "Thoughts", and "Inmost Fear" were also featured on Rowe Production's compilation album "Northern Lights: Norwegian Metal Compilation" in 1996.
Martyrium (architecture) The central-plan martyrium church became a shape used for important churches which didn't contain important relics, as was the case of the Constantinian "Golden Octagon" at Antioch, perhaps also of the octagonal church of Caesarea Maritima (built ca. 480-500), San Vitale in Ravenna (526-547), and the Palatine Chapel in Aachen (ca. 792-805).
Martyrium (architecture) Later churches began to bring the relics of saints to the church, rather than placing the church over the grave; the first translation of relics was in Antioch in 354, when the remains of Saint Babylas, which were in a sarcophagus, were moved to a new church.
