Women Who Died For Love In The Bible, History, Mythology, Literature And Folklore


Women Who Died For Love In The Bible, History, Mythology, Literature And Folklore.


Love! A verb, a noun, an emotion, a drug etc. It has been described in various ways. Can you die for love? Would you want someone who loves you to die for you?


And is it better to die for love than to live for love is the question that first rang through my mind when I came across a friend’s Face Book status update that read something like?



Valentine died for love,

Romeo also died for love,

Jack in Titanic died for love,

Samson in the Bible died for love,

Greek Heroes Hercules & Achilles died for love.

Even Jesus Christ died for love!

Where are the women?

Don’t buy any woman a Valentines treat/Gift/Diamondring this year until she gives you at least 5 names of women who died for love … Because no woman would die for love… Wake up, guys…


After my rather innocent initial question to myself, my feminine side rose up with fury. Yes, friends!


My feline, cat or whatever other animal description can be used side of me reared its stubborn head.


I angrily, muttered to myself, “I’m really tired of these one-sided narratives. It’s high time we started telling two sides of the story.”


I love a challenge, therefore I decided to take on the challenge and went looking for those women who have died for love in History.


However, as I was searching, another question kept nagging my mind (Yes! I suffer from questioning things syndrome).


When love is mentioned in this caption, is the author speaking of romantic love or the Biblical 1 Corinthians 13 kind of love?
