(monday) history in your game

torture, martyrs and witches-with other dinner conversation

Caution: links contain some strong images and depictions of torture equipment and methods. nothing too graphic, mostly medieval illustrations, but be careful if you are not comfortable with such stuff :)

we start with a firsthand account of inquisitorial torture from a 13th century fransciscan- http://www.fordham.edu/halsall/source/clareno-inq.html

a page with pictures of the basic torture implements of europe- http://www.angelfire.com/mt/mspepper/torturepics.html

a nice look at "trial by ordeal" the rest of the page is full of useful stuff too- http://www.communities.ninemsn.com.au/InstrumentsofTortureMedievaltoModern/trialbyordeal1.msnw

the historical torture museum(graphic intensive in places, and i mean computer speed, not graphic detail)- http://www.torturamuseum.com/

good pics of torture implements with short descriptions- http://www.geocities.com/SunsetStrip/Basement/9560/tdevices.html

medieval torture trading cards! - http://apollinaria.rema.ru/martyr.html
