  Martyr \Mar"tyr\, n. [AS., from L. martyr, Gr. ma`rtyr, ma`rtys,
     prop., a witness; cf. Skr. sm[.r] to remember, E. memory.]
     [1913 Webster]
     1. One who, by his death, bears witness to the truth of the
        gospel; one who is put to death for his religion; as,
        Stephen was the first Christian martyr. --Chaucer.
        [1913 Webster]
  
              To be a martyr, signifies only to witness the truth
              of Christ; but the witnessing of the truth was then
              so generally attended with persecution, that
              martyrdom now signifies not only to witness, but to
              witness by death.                     --South.

  Martyr
     one who bears witness of the truth, and suffers death in the
     cause of Christ (Acts 22:20; Rev. 2:13; 17:6). In this sense
     Stephen was the first martyr. The Greek word so rendered in all
     other cases is translated "witness." (1.) In a court of justice
     (Matt. 18:16; 26:65; Acts 6:13; 7:58; Heb. 10:28; 1 Tim. 5:19).
     (2.) As of one bearing testimony to the truth of what he has
     seen or known (Luke 24:48; Acts 1:8, 22; Rom. 1:9; 1 Thess. 2:5,
     10; 1 John 1:2).
     

Din dicționarul THE DEVIL'S DICTIONARY ((C)1911 Released April 15 1993) :

  MARTYR, n.  One who moves along the line of least reluctance to a
  desired death.
