  1. There is always such an absurd distance from history. When I think of crucifiction I mostly have a very romanticised, theatrical vision in my head. But the fact is that humans were truly put to death like that once.

  2. Sadly, humans never seem to lack the creativity to be cruel and gruesome. Monsieur le guillotine and drawing & quartering are just two of many other horrific methods that come to mind.

  3. Evil ! Anyone who would delight in watching such a thing needs to nailed on up there , themselves ! There are Americans who would be so horrible , l'm positive … Sad

  4. The same morbid curiosity of death and mayhem exists to this day everywhere. You have to look no further than all the looky looks that slow down so they can get a real good look at an auto accident, even when they are on the opposite side of a divided highway.

  5. Life of still cheap, in the regards that we disassociate the value of life. Only when it’s a poor Yemenite, or other brown person that is engulfed in flames from a us drone strike.

  6. I’m sure it was popular as the one being crucified was humiliated.. Sh*t still goes on to this day just in a different form.😏

  7. It should be noted that the Romans outlawed crucifixion in the 4th century, then it was brought back in the 6th when Allah ordered the Muslims to use it as punishment for certain infidels, go figure!

  8. I've heard over and over that western civilisation is what it is today because of ancient Roman culture, the cruel practices of rome included. The white man's greed for resources and conquering ways come from ancient rome. Even today the west has enslaved other races.
