  1. If those dates are correct he must have been very frail towards the end of his tenure

  2. Thats a pretty comfortable career

    > work for 68 years

    > chop off on average 8 peoples heads a year

    > prestige of working for the papal states

    > never worried about anything

    > have a car named after you a few hundred years later

    All I gotta say is based

  3. He did that for 70yrs? Ppl even live that long back then?

  4. I wonder if this is how the classic personification of death came about.

  5. Europe was such a brutal place

  6. There’s a story about a medieval town at which executions were carried out at a gallows one mile behind the castle. It was customary for the condemned to walk on foot while the executioner rode on horseback. On the day in question,it was cold and rainy with peals of thunder and sleet. The lonely pair plodded slowly through thick mud and frozen puddles.

    ‟Dear Lord!” moaned the condemned man,‟I’m doomed to die on the gallows and I have to carry my own rope and walk through this awful slop while YOU,my executioner,get to ride on horseback?”

    ‟You think YOU have it bad,” replied the executioner,‟I have to ride BACK through this shit!”

  7. That’s be a cool-ass job. Getting to chop the heads off of criminals and getting paid under the table plus 401k, health and dental? Damn! Beats the hell out of those lame-ass “tech jerbs.”

  8. Robe was white when he got it

  9. Just another day at work^slash!

  10. Ngl public executions seem pretty fun to go to especially if the criminal is an evil bastard.

  11. “Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life.”

  12. He kept a journal detailing his work. I am desperately trying to find an English translation.

  13. Honey, how was your day?

    Great. just killed it today.

  14. Nobody expects the spanish inquisition!

  15. I just ralized why the robe is red.

    So the blood does not show up on it as easily.

  16. Yeah that’s definitely creepy…

    Thou shall not kill. Pope gets a personal grim reaper look alike.

  23. In his 68 years of doing this he would have killed 7.5 people a year.

  24. Europe was the wild wild west

  25. 68 years?? Did he start when he was 12?? And still swinging that axe, hard enough to decapitate someone, at 80?

  26. almost employ of the century

  27. The real grave digger

    “These robes were white when I bought ‘em.”

  33. Curious person here, if someone was to cut themselves with that axe could they catch some super old disease or is that no longer possible

  34. Out of the executions over a dozen lived without a head.

  35. Look up the Nazi party’s official executioner… I forget his name… There is a documentary on the guy.

  36. I bet he was definitely haunted for the rest of his life.

  37. Was he a real life moderator? Booting people out of this shitty subreddit we call earth?

  38. That axe has seen a lot of action.

  39. Is buggati named after this guy?

  40. Not going to lie, I would have expected a larger axe.

  41. That’s the Bad Color.

  42. Why does shit like this fascinate me

  43. His mother must be proud.

  44. It reminds me of the movie the village

  45. Pic reminds me of the film The Village
