The music doesn't fit... [Feb. 25th, 2006|01:43 am]

[music |Shake Your Tailfeather]

During the inquisition in fifteenth-century Spain, prisoners condemned to burn were forced to walk to their doom wearing a special frock called a sanbenito. On it were painted pictures of the fiery mouth of hell. After the accused died, his name was written on the sanbenito and it was hung in his parish church, where it remained until it fell apart. Occasionally an old sanbenito would be replaced by a fresh one so that the infamy of the heretic who had worn it would be perpetuated through the ages.
