Tortures and Torments of the Christian Martyrs

These images are originally from a ca. 1930 limited Fortune Press book entitled ``Tortures and Torments of the Christian Martyrs'', itself a photographic copy of an earlier, rare folio published by William Brendon & Son in 1904. The original woodcut images are from Papal-approved documents dated 1591--1600.

This is a serious reference work for pious purposes, not to be used for frivilous or cheap, tawdry thrills.

These images, plus the original juicy texts translated into modern English, a forensic monograph on the likely physical death of Jesus (including technical anatomical drawings and descriptive text), modern-day torture illustrations created by contemporary artists such as Joe Coleman, drawings by world-famous artists Richard Ramirez and John Wayne Gacy and illuminating commentary from the publisher, are available in the trade-paper book entitled, not surprisingly:

``Tortures and Torments of the Christian Martyrs'', published by FERAL HOUSE, Box 861893, Los Angeles CA 90086-1893. I highly recommend this book!
