Why Medieval Torture Devices are Not Medieval 

When many people think about the Middle Ages they see it as a time when people were tortured by a wide collection of diabolical instruments. Whether it is the Pear of Anguish or the Iron Maiden, these torture devices are portrayed as medieval. The reality, however, is that many of these devices never existed in the Middle Ages. 


The "Pearl of Anguish" was more likely a dental instrument than a "torture in the orifice" device.

The Iron Maiden of Nuremberg pictured above (destroyed in WWII) was KNOWN TO BE A FAKE.

The RACK (photo by Dark Dwarf flicker at the Tower of London) used on difficult subjects during the Middle Ages, was invented and utilized LONG before.

Excellent and informative myth debunking article with appropriately descriptive graphics.
