THE BREAKING WHEEL This form of execution was used in Europe throughout the Middle Ages and into the 19th century. The condemned was tied to a large wooden wheel, which was rotated slowly while the executioner struck down on his limbs with an iron bar or hammer, breaking the bones. This was usually done in public places, and the victim's broken body was left out on display. Often, the breaking of bones did not kill the victim, and he would die days later of shock or dehydration.

Even though the name implies that this instrument was only used for "splitting" knees, it was also used in other body parts including: the elbows, arms and even the lower legs. As the torturer turned the handle, the claws slowly slammed against each other mutilating any skin in between. The number of spikes the knee splitter contained varied

A popular torture device during the Inquisition, the knee splitter does what it says: split victims’ knees and render them useless. Built from two spiked wood blocks, the knee splitter is placed on top of and behind the knee of its victims. Two large screws connecting the blocks are then turned, causing the two blocks to close towards each other and effectively destroy a victim’s knee. (just the picture)

Medieval Torture Device used by the Catholic church during the genocide of Christian Cathars and Christian order of the Templars How can any religious order claim that this would be ok with God! This is the work of men not God. They should be ashamed.
The Chair of Torture - Also known as the Judas Chair, it was a terrible, intimidating torture device that was added to dungeons in the Middle Ages. Used until the 1800′s in Europe, this chair was layered with 500 to 1,500 spikes on every surface with tight straps to restrain its victim. Made of iron, it can also contain spaces for heating elements beneath the seat. It was often used to scare people into giving confessions as they watched others being tortured on the device.
The Chair of Torture dates back to the Middle Ages but may have been used till the late 19th Century. This ultimate interrogation chair had spikes covering the seat, back, and arm-, leg- and footrests – but there was no rest, for the wicked or anyone else who sat in this thing. El Carnicero threatens Teresa with this.
A convict on the ladder-like contraption. Their shins would have been digging into the edge of the cross board every time they allowed their body to relax. And they wouldn’t have been able to sit or stand but would’ve been forced to stay in that uncomfortable, hunched position for as long as the punishment dictated.

SPANISH DONKEY. One of the torture devices during the Spanish Inquisition, this is probably one of the most gruesome of them all. The victim is put astride, naked, on a donkey-like apparatus, which is actually a vertical wooden board with a sharp V-wedge on top of it. After that, the torturer would add varying weights to the victimâ€™s feet until finally the wedge sliced through the victimâ€™s body.

The "Iron Maiden," in an image from Nuremberg c. 1500. This was an instrument of torture which was lined with spikes that would pierce the unfortunate wearer when the doors were closed.
1500, Middle Age
Iron Maiden: A torture device, consisting of an iron cabinet, with a hinged front, sufficiently tall to enclose a human being. The Iron Maiden is often associated with the Middle Ages, but in fact was not invented until the 19th century. No account of the iron maiden has been found earlier than 1793, although medieval torture devices were elaborately catalogued with horrified fascination and reproduced during the 19th century for collectors of the macabre. - Wikipedia

"This device stifles the screams so as not to disturb the conversation of torturers. The iron “box” on the inside of the ring is forced into the victim’s mouth and the collar fastened behind their neck. A small hole allows the passage of air but this can be stopped up by a touch of the executioner’s fingertip, producing suffocation."
