Strappado

Note: This page moved to Villains Wiki.

Strappado was a form of torture used by the medieval Inquisition which consisted of tieing a victim their back and suspending them in the air by means of a rope attached to wrists, which often resulted in the dislocation of both arms. Weights were often added to the body to intensify the effect and increase the pain.

Methods such as this, although seen as unforgivable today, were seen as a "necessary evil" in its time-period, though their has likely always been some degree of opposition to the use of torture.

Today however all forms of torture are considered a gross violation of human rights and is punishable under law in many countries.
