The iron maiden, consisting of a person-sized iron enclosure filled with
spikes, was invented in the Germanic town of Nuremberg, probably in the 14th
century. There are many iron maidens on display in museums around the world
but scholars feel that these were made for display and never used.
The iron maiden of Nuremburg (first displayed in 1822 and destroyed during
WWII bombing attacks) was one of these mock-ups but it is believed that this
one was based on a real device used in the torture of witches and others who
opposed the church.

“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
