Sometimes I'm just grateful for the generation in which we live in. It's not that good however it's not that bad when it comes to barbarism. During the medieval barbarism was flying through the charts in the way in which they were executing law offenders.

Here is a list of some of the most agonizing execution methods invented by mankind.

1. Boiling in water

A slow and agonizing punishment, this method historically noticed the victim gradually reduced, feet first, into boiling oil, water, or wax.

If the shock of the pain did not render them immediately unconscious, the person could revel in the excruciating sensation of their outer layers of skin, completely destroyed by a way of immersion burns, dissolving proper off their body, accompanied via the entire breakdown of the fatty tissue, boiling away underneath.

Emperor Nero is stated to have dispatched heaps of Christians in this way, however in the Middle Ages, the main recipients of the punishment were not killers or rapists however coin forgers, in particular in Germany and the Holy Roman Empire. In Britain, in the meantime, King Henry VIII introduced the practice for executing those who used poison to dedicate homicide.

Imagine being boiled in water for forging a coin, definitely not cool at all.

2. Blood eagle

a method ascribed to ancient Norse warriors, the blood eagle blended brutality and poetic imagery in a manner that best the Vikings should. First, the sufferer’s lower back would be hacked open and the pores and skin ripped apart, exposing the spinal column.

The ribs would then be snapped from the spine and forcibly bent backwards till they faced outwards from the frame, forming a pair of bloody, shattered eagle’s wings. As a frightening finale, the lungs could then be pulled from the frame hollow space and coated with stinging salt, causing eventual death by suffocation.

3. Impalement

Traditionally, the stake might be partly sharpened and planted, facing up, in the floor. The victim could then be placed over the spike as it was inserted partway into the rectum or vagina.

As their own frame weight dragged them further onto the pole, the semi-greased wooden stake would force its way up through their frame, piercing organs with an agonizing slowness as it in the end penetrated the entire torso, finally tearing out an exit through the pores and skin of the shoulder, neck or throat.

Which of these three is the most excruciating one, leave your answers in the comments. Please be sure to like, share and follow. Thank you.
