One of the most realistic and vivid reproductions of this notable torture chamber of the middle ages in five scenes: 1 The Prison. Whence the prisoners are called out to undergo their trials and suffering. 2 Torture Chamber, where we see prisoners undergoing many or the well-known forms of torture used. 3 The Rack. 4 Torture on the Wheel. 5 Burning at the Stake. The whole Is beautifully tinted; In new colors by a process of our own.
