    Tsurushi

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia



    Illustration of tsurushi.

    Tsurushi (Japanese: 釣殺し), or "reverse hanging", was a Japanese torture technique used in the 17th century to coerce Christians ("Kirishitan") to recant their faith. Both Japanese and Western Christians are known to have been submitted to the torture. As the tortured was held by the feet with a rope, one of the hands would be held tight with a rope, but another would be left hanging freely, so that a sign could be made by the tortured that he was willing to recant.
    The technique was said to be unbearable for those submitted to it. The body was often lowered into a hole, itself often filled with excrement at the bottom. Typically, a cut would be made in the forehead in order to let blood pressure decrease in the area around the head.
    Christians were let go after apostatizing, and in this way the Shogunate practically purged it from Japan.
    A notable victim of this method of torture was Saint Lorenzo Ruiz, the first Filipino martyr to be canonized by the Roman Catholic Church.
    The Tsurushi or 'pit' was made famous in the novel Silence by Shusaku Endo.[1]

    Father Timothy when you abandon your martrydom complex,proselytization, the need to traipse into the faire land demanding another slew of private jets and denigrate other peoples cultural traditions you will understand when other people do the same thing to your kind and you are promptly thrown out just as you have been in India, China, Taiwan, Vietnam, Korea and Japan.
