When it comes to torture or torturing, it's often not the technique nor the device's brutality that makes it unsettling, but rather the great amount of effort and creativity (no matter how perverse it may be) put into the creation of the torture method designed to inflict maximum pain to its victim.

1. The Brazen Bull

Designed in ancient Greece, the Brazen Bull, also known as the Sicilian Bull, was a solid piece of brass with a side door that could be opened and latched. With a fire set underneath, the victim would be put inside the bull and would be slowly roasted to death. The Brazen Bull was specifically designed to amplify the screams of the victim and make them sound like the bellowing of a bull.

2. Heretics fork

This torture device consists of a metal piece with 2 opposing bi-pronged forks attached to a strap. One end of the device was pushed under the victim's chin while the other goes against the sternum. The victim is then hung from the ceiling and the strap was used to secure the heretic fork around the neck of the victim. If the victim's head dropped, the prongs would pierce the chest and throat.

Here are 10 of the most brutal torture techniques ever devised in history. This sure made me cringe.

If the victim's head dropped, the prongs would pierce the chest and throat.



3. Impalement

In ancient Romania, those who were sentenced to death by impalement were forced to sit on a sharp and thick pole. When the pole was raised upright, the victim would eventually slide down the pole with their own weight. It take 3 days for the victim to die. Impalement was believed to be the most favored method of execution of Vlad the Impaler who has been known to impale 20,000 people while eating his meal.



4. Neck torture

The neck torture was sort of an endurance test which involves hooking the victim into a neck device that's either made of wood or metal. The cruelty of this torture lie within the fact that it prevents the victim from eating or lowering their head for days.



5. The tub

The tub involves placing the convicted person in a wooden tub with only the head sticking out. His face would then be painted with milk and honey. Soon, flies would begin to feed on the person. They also make it a point to fed the victim regularly so he would end up sitting in his own excrement. A few days of sitting in the tub would lead maggots and worms to devour the body as it decayed alive.

6. Coffin torture

In the Middle Ages, the coffin torture was the most preferred torture technique. The victim is placed inside a metal cage that was just about the size of the human body - hence the name. Overweight victims suffered extra torture as they were forced into smaller cages. The coffin were then hung from a tree or gallows which would be left there until crows came to feed on the victim's remains.



7. Crucifixion

Crucifixion is one of the most known execution methods due to the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. The condemned person is nailed or tied to a large wooden cross and left to hang until death which mostly takes days.



8. Iron Maiden

This torture device consisted of an iron cabinet with a hinged front and spike-covered interior just enough to enclose a person. Once the victim is inside the frame, he would be unable to move due to the number of steel spikes that would impale him in every direction. Jagged edges would poke the victim inside while an interrogator ask him questions.



9. Judas cradle

Judas cradle is a bit similar to impalement. The punishment starts by sitting the victim on the pyramid-shaped cradle. The victim would then be forced down by ropes with the intention of stretching the victim's orifice over a long period of time, impaling him slowly. The victim was usually undressed and the device was seldom washed - meaning, if the torture doesn't terminate the victim, the infection contracted from it would.



10. Lead sprinkler

Filled usually with boiling oil or water, molten lead, and tar, the lead sprinkler was used by dripping its contents onto the stomach, the eyes, or other body parts of the victim. Using the same device, the torturer would then proceed to pouring molten silver on the victim's eyes which resulted in agonizing pain and eventually, death.
