Interrogational torture in criminal proceedings: reflections on legal history II

  • Subject of this publication is torture as an interrogational instrument in criminal proceedings from a legal history point of view. Thereby, the paper at hand is the continuation of Volume I (published in 2014, number 68 of the Legal Policy Forum). Volume II covers the following historical periods: Late Middle Ages and Early Modern Age; the latter ending with the 18th century as the so called Century of Enlightenment, being the actual beginning of the Modern Age in criminal law and criminal procedure law. The paper ends with critical remarks against the predominant view that the torture's reign of terror in the former inquisitionsprozess merely was the inevitable consequence of the unreasonable kaw on evidence applicable at that time.
