The Heretic's Fork

The Medieval Torture Museum

San Gimignano, Italy

This instrument was made of two little forks, one set against the other and of which the points rammed into the flesh under the chin and over the chest.

A little collar supported the instrument to prevent any movement of the victim. The forks did not penetrate into vital points, prolonging suffering before death.

Obviously, the victim's hands were tied behind his back.
