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?

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?









Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; 5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; 6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; 7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8 Love never fails. 

1 Corinthians 13:4-8

My quest to disprove the notion that women don’t die for love led me to research. And my search came up with these amazing, brave, bold and courageous women who went through great ordeals in the name of love. I hope each of their stories inspires us to love those in our lives better.
