Punishment


Back to medieval times

BACK TO MEDIEVAL TIMES

  • Crime and punishment in medieval times was extreme. People were bound and thrown in the ocean; if they sunk they were guilty of the crime. If they stole something their hands would be cut off. If a woman committed murder, she would be strangled and burnt to death. If they got caught hunting illegally their ears would be cut off.

  • The Medieval punishment by torture included the compression of the limbs by special instruments, or by ropes only; injection of water, vinegar, or oil, into the body of the accused; application of hot pitch, and starvation were the processes most in use. Other means were placing hot eggs under armpits, tying lighted candles to the fingers, so that they might be consumed simultaneously with the wax, letting water trickle drop by drop from a great height on the stomach, or watering the feet with salt water and allowing goats to lick them. In some cases, the torture lasted five or six hours

  • After the torture, the next step in the Medieval punishment was the execution. There were different ways of carrying out the final stage of the Medieval punishment. The punishment by fire was always inflicted in cases of heresy or blasphemy. The Spanish Inquisition made a constant use of it. In France, in the beginning of the 14th Century, fifty-nine Templars were burned at the same time for the crimes of heresy and witchcraft.

  • Decapitation was another mode to carry out the death sentences. In some countries, it was performed with an axe, or, as in France, with a two-handed sword. The victim was allowed to choose whether he would have his eyes covered up or not.

  • One of the most horrible methods of Medieval punishment was the quartering, performed using ropes attached to each of the limbs of the condemned. The ropes were fastened to four bars, to each of which a strong horse was harnessed.

  • Overall, hanging was the most used method of execution in France. In every town, and almost in every village, there was a permanent gibbet.
