Torture Devices From Spanish Inquisition

Not a comprehensive list but here are a few. I regard Spanish Inquisition as one of the most sickest periods of human habitation on Earth. The whole of Latin America lost its cultural roots and were supplanted by the European culture, language etc. Tribes from countries like Mexico, Brazil etc were completely wiped off and instead a new way of living was forcibly laid on top.

Below are some of the famous torture devices from during that period. These Spaniards were one of the most cruelest people of that time. Its truly despicable what they did in the name of religion.

Without much further ado, read on about the devices below:

Judas Cradle – The Judas Cradle is a very painful torture. The victim was seated on a triangular-shaped seat where he or she was slowly impaled.

Coffin Torture – The coffin torture – a very cruel medieval device where the victim was locked for hours or longer.

The Brazen Bull – The brazen bull was a terrible torture device used in ancient Greece and throughout the Middle Ages.

The Rack Torture – The rack is commonly referred as the most painful medieval torture of them all.

The Water Torture – There were many ways to punish a victim with the use of water. This article explains the most common forms of such torture.

Exposure – A terrible torture that was often deadly. The exposure was a method used all around medieval Europe. The sentence depended on the crime.

The Chair of Torture – A striking instrument, the Chair was widely used throughout medieval Europe and beyond. It’s origins are not clear, but the truth remains: This is one of the most painful and psychologically striking tortures ever devised by the human mind.

The Pear of Anguish – A very painful torture applied almost exclusively on witches, liars, blasphemers and homosexuals.

The Rat Torture – Rats were used for torture. They were free, available and painful if known how to use.
