|Russian term or phrase: жертвенность ....|
|рассказать историю жертвенности|
(self-sacrifice, а еще? для текста из истории средних веков...)
|English translation:sacrificial history, history of sacrificial rites|
or rites of sacrifice... Immolation is too specific as it refers to burning, and there can be other kinds of sacrifice, which do not necessarily involve killing at all. An oath of celibacy is a kind of sacrifice (!), flagellation is a sacrificial rite... It would be really best to have a passage from the original, to see exactly what they are talking about.
