I've googled stigmata, but only get information about wounds that resemble those of Christ at the crucifixion...and I've failed to come up with any good short ways to look up the question I have!

Does the term stigmata only refer to the event of someone mirroring the wounds of Christ? If an individual manifested the wounds of some other martyred saint, would that also be called stigmata or is there some other term for it?

Being that my story takes place in a fantasy world, where Christianity is not the religion, I could create a seperate word for this occurance in the language of the MC's race...but I'm not sure yet if I should or not. Any insight would be appreciated.
