The Judas CradleThe Judas Cradle, a medieval torture where the victim would be placed on top of a pyramid-like seat. The victim's feet were tied to each other in a way that moving one leg would force the other to move as well - increasing pain.
The triangular-shaped end of the Judas cradle was inserted in the victim's anus or vagina. This torture could last anywhere from a few hours to complete days.
While loss of blood really wasn't a risk, the device was never cleaned, so victims died of infection: Bacteria, blood, pus, discharge... Well, you get the point.l< << PREV 1 of 10 NEXT >>
