CRIME, TORTURE & PUNISHMENT UNDER THE KNIGHTS
What sort of crimes were committed in Malta during the period 1600 to 1798? How did the Justice system actually work? Why and when was torture resorted to? What was the role of the public during execution rituals?
A talk on Dr William Zammit’s Kissing the Gallows – a book which is not for the squeamish – will answer the above questions you might be too afraid to ask.
These and other questions will be delved into by the speaker. Come and learn about the spine-chilling retribution meted out by authority on the 23rd March at 7pm at the Palazzo de la Salle in Republic Street, Valletta.
Tickets can be acquired here.
