Nobody expects the Czech Inquestion



The museum of Medieval Torture in Prague doesn't leave you in much doubt that it wasn't a good time to be a non-believer in the middle ages - or a woman frankly. Certainly not one who was good with herbs, or maybe had a wart on her nose. http://www.heartofeurope.cz/museum_6.html#torture

People were just so inventive at inflicting pain on other humans. And some of the things had for women! Jesus, only a man, and one who wasn't getting any, could have thought of those!

But the bloody-thirsty schoolboy in me sure enjoyed it! lol

And to think that all those instruments are just exhibits from the Government - "Bringing discipline back into Schools" program of the era.
