Ένας Γερμανός ερευνητής που έχει σπουδάσει το
μεσαιωνικό ποινικό δίκαιο διαπίστωσε ότι η εικόνα μας
για την σαδιστική αντιμετώπιση των εγκληματιών στο
Μεσαίωνα είναι μόνο εν μέρει αλήθεια. Τα βασανιστήρια
και οι φρικιαστικές εκτελέσεις σχεδιάστηκαν εν μέρει
για να εξασφαλίσουν τη σωτηρία της
ψυχής του καταδικασθέντος.


Μία αντίληψη που μόνον σαδιστές,
θα μπορούσαν να διατυπώσουν.
