Torture: Medieval Information Technology

Now if someone wants to ruin your life they can steal your identity and make you electronically cease to exist. That seems bad enough, but back in medieval times if you wanted to ruin someone's life the best thing to do was to accuse them of a crime like blasphemy. Then came the pain and the torture and eventually even if you didn't do anything you'd admit to it just so they'd kill you.

I'm doing some research for Fiona O'Sithein and found this lovely site.

Don't worry our sweet, little Fiona isn't doing the torturing. ;)
