25 Brutal Medieval Torture Methods...



Anyone who's taken a history class knows that the 

world has seen its fair share of ruthless and evil rulers. 

Using tactics to inspire fear, they secured their power.

Below are just a few of the many, many instruments of torture 

and suffering that medieval (an especially cruel era) rulers 

used to punish their citizens and enemies.

You’ve certainly heard of some of these, but others 

will give you a creepy education in just how savage 

things were back then.

NOTE: Some of these devices and illustrations are quite graphic. 

You’ve been warned!


Heretic's Fork


As you can see, this device was placed between the 

victim’s chest and chin. It gets its name from the fact that 

it was mostly used to get blasphemers to repent.

They were unable to talk, and every time they dropped their 

head in exhaustion, they’d experience great pain, 

making confessions, false or not, very common.


Judas Cradle


The pic says it all. The victim would be suspended 

over a blunt-ish point and lowered onto it as their 

resistance gave out.

The point would enter them and tear their insides up, 

resulting in a confession or, equally likely, death.

The Brazen Bull

This one’s awfully creative for being so brutal.
The victim was placed inside a giant brass bull. 
A fire would be lit under the bull and quickly the 
person inside the bull would get very hot, then very dead.

The Rat


Yikes!

In this particularly terrible exercise, a rat or other rodent 

would be placed in a box atop a person’s stomach.

With no food or way out, it was only a matter of time before 

the rodent would burrow through the person’s skin wreaking 

all sorts of havoc.


Death by Sawing


All you need to know is there in the pic. 
Not a great time, right?
This was done in Ancient Persia.

The German Chair


The person would be tied to the chair when it’s flat, 
then it would slowly recline, bending the body…the wrong way.
Yikes! Wouldn’t be long until people confessed.
