Chair of Torture on this anaglyph 3D photo was photographed in the Amsterdam’s museum of torture. Also known as the Judas Chair, the Chair of Torture was a terrible device of the Middle Ages.
The central Europe – the main place of its popularity. It was used until the late 1800′s. There are many variants of the chair. They all have one thing in common: arm-rests, leg-rests, spikes cover the back, seat and foot-rests. The number of spikes in one of these chairs ranges about from 400 to 2000. This torture wasn’t used a lot. In fact, it was rarely used. But when a person was sentenced to it, he’d find a way to prevent it. There are records of people committing suicide before actually being subject to this torture. Just looking at the “chair” will make a person understand why medieval torture is so terrible.
