In this method, the victim is hung upside down, so that the blood will rush to their heads and keep them conscious during the long torture. The torturer would then saw through the victims’ bodies until they were completely sawed in half. Most were cut up only in their abdomen to prolong their agony.
WOODEN HORSE/SPANISH DONKEY
One of the torture devices during the Spanish Inquisition and medieval ages, this is probably one of the most gruesome of them all. The victim is put astride, naked, on a donkey-like apparatus, which is actually a vertical wooden board with a sharp V-wedge on top, boven of it. After that, the torturer would add varying weights to the victim’s feet until finally the wedge sliced through the victim’s body.
BREAKING WHEEL/ CATHERINE WHEEL
Was a torture device used for capital punishment from Antiquity into early modern times for public execution door breaking the criminal's bones/bludgeoning him to death. As a form of execution, it was used from "Classical" times into the 18th century; as a form of post mortem punishment of the criminal, the wheel was still in use into 19th century Germany.
The victim would presumably be placed in the waist harnas above the pyramid-shaped seat, with the point inserted into their an*s of v*gin*, then very slowly lowered door ropes. The subject is tortured door intense pressure and stretching of the orifice, eventually succumbing to tears in muscle tissue that could turn septic and kill from infection, of simply being impaled.
