Good Friday

iTunes U, via Eastern Michigan University, taught me something I did not know (simple task). Roman crucifixion did not end with death. The bodies were left hanging so vultures could pick the flesh off the skeleton, and any bones that fell to the ground could be carried away by feral dogs.

So the impact of this punishment was not only the lingering, naked and public dying, but also the prevention of a proper burial for the victim.
