Martyrion: a structure erected for bearing witness to the truths of the spirit; especially: an incarnated human being viewed as such a structure

"Mary said: My soul doth magnify the Lord, and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour."
—Luke 1:46-47

The word martyr is a Greek word, meaning "witness" — to bear witness to the truths of the spirit is to experience martyrdom.
Rudolf Steiner: "The whole history of humankind is the entombment of the Godhead."  
"He must increase; I must decrease."  — John 3:30
"I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God. I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain."  — Galatians 2:19-21
