6 Weird, Horror Punishments In History You Won’t Believe They Ever Existed (P1)

weird punishments

Since ancient times, justice has been very harshly enforced. In fact, the word ‘harsh’ is not enough to describe the horror and weird punishments that had been performed on criminals to set an example for society. I must use the word ‘brutal’ to describe the nature of the ancient punishments. If you were a medieval citizen and you happened to break the law or do something wrong, offend or threaten the balance of society, you would probably tremble at the punishments you could receive. And then you’ll be lucky to have been born in modern times when punishments have become much more humane.

Let’s take a look at 6 of the most brutal punishments in human history and look forward to part 2 of the article.

#1 Blood Eagle

This method is one of the most brutal punishments in the article. Victims will remain alive during the process of their backs being slashed, the ribs being bent back like an eagle’s wings, and the internal organs lined up in the direction of the ribs.

#2 Cooked In A Metal Bull

The criminal was housed inside an elaborately crafted hollow bull in bronze. The cow would be heated up and the victim slowly died in agony. The victim’s screams sounded like the roar of a real bull.

#3 Nudity

In medieval France, those who committed adultery were subject to the humiliating punishment of walking naked in the streets, being humiliated and scrutinized by everyone around them, and having to accept a ruined reputation.

#4 Crushed By Rocks

Those who were punished had to lie on the ground with a pile of stones piled high on them, increasing in weight. They must die slowly and painfully.

#5 Tattoos

This is the most seemingly gentle punishment here with its origin in Japan. The tattoos would show the crime level of the criminal. For example, a murderer would have a very noticeable tattoo on his head, while a thief only received a simple tattoo on his arm.

#6 Pig Execution

In today’s society, animals harmful to humans can be destroyed. However, in the past, a series of trials had to be opened for the sentencing of lethal pigs, mostly between the 14th and 16th centuries.
