Death by Sawing

The practice of sawing someone to death seems to have been utilised fairly widely as far as geography is concerned, but not that regularly. Reports emanate from Switzerland, thorugh the Ottoman Empire and all the way to China. Different people chose to cut in different directions, sometimes sideways across the abdomen, this was the prefered method of Roman Emperor Caligula , and sometimes lengthwise from the head down, some chose to start with the limbs and work their way to the major organs. However you cut it, the end product was the same: a quivering messy mass of guts and blood. Not many first hand accounts exist of the actual procedure, but plenty of people are reported to have fallen to the mighty saw: In Persia one of their famous leaders — Jamshid — had enjoyed a long and peaceful reign. Unfortunately he forgot that his success was thanks to God and started expecting people to worship him. That was unacceptable. The people rebelled and ended up sawing him in half to teach him a lesson. Source: https://www.sickchirpse.com/death-by-sawing/ #history #torture #execution #macabre #gore
