Comments Ustav timukas : elu ja surm, au ja häbi tormilisel 16. sajandil

  • Aaron Kent

    This one is currently holding the title of best book I have read in 2013. It tells the story of a 16th century executioner, through the critical study of a journal he kept through-out the course of his career. Although it isn't a journal in our modern sense of the word, it nevertheless informs this utterly engrossing look at medieval society in 16th century Nuremburg. It's a real eye opener and refutes a lot of (non academic) preconceptions I think the majority of us have concerning the middle a [...]

  • Susan

    This is the fascinating story of Meister Frantz Schmidt (1555 - 1634) who was an executioner and torturer in Nuremberg and who kept a diary, which the author has fleshed out into an incredible biography of a man and a time which is little known. It was unusual to keep a diary in those times, but Schmidt kept a personal journal of the executions he carried out throughout his long career, from 1573 at the age of just nineteen, to his retirement in 1618.One of the oddest, and saddest, things about [...]

  • Петър Стойков

    През 1573 г. главният екзекутор в Нюрнберг започва да си води дневник на присъдите, които е изпълнил, и продължава да го прави през цялата си кариера - в продължение на 40 години той екзекутира около 400 осъдени престъпници, а бичуванията, жигосванията и др. по-леки наказания коит [...]

  • Emily

    The chief storyline of this book concerns Meister Frantz Schmidt's efforts to restore his family name. Schmidt's father, a respectable woodsman, had the misfortune to be standing around when a despised local noble required someone to dispatch some supposed would-be assassins, on the spot. The father was permanently tainted by this killing, leaving him and his son no choice but to become professional executioners. Frantz spends his entire (unusually long) life trying to revive his family's good n [...]

  • Darren Anderson

    Excellent book. For the most part, he presents a fair narrative without imposing modern ideas of morality. He places a lot of the practices of the day in a context that creates sympathy rather than disgust.

  • Rick Skwiot

    Although not recommended for the faint of heart, this book gives much more than graphic and gruesome accounts of 16th century German crime and criminal justice--the latter with sanctioned torture to elicit confessions, burning "witches" alive, and other forms of painful punishment and death. (Underscoring how painful and frightening were some execution methods, are accounts of prisoners throwing themselves down before the court and kissing the judges' hands in gratitude for commuting their sente [...]

  • Jill

    I'm a crime fanatic so this book was right up my alley. It is a non-fiction work based on the diary of an actual executioner in Germany in the late 1500's. The book delved into an executioner's place in his world; well-paid but ostracized by greater society. In addition to executing 300+ people during his tenure, Frantz Schmidt also acted as the town doctor, married and raised children. There is of course much time spent on execution methods at the time and various other physical punishments. Ho [...]

  • Geoff Boxell

    This book was recommended to me by a fellow re-enactor and reviewer. I am pleased that I bought the book.Others have given details of what the book is about, so I won't boringly repeat what they have said. What I will do is say that, if you think that getting this book will give you cheap thrills from the blood & gore of a book about an executioner and tortuerer, you will be dissapointed: graphic details are not there. What you will get is a good insight into early modern German thinking, m [...]

  • Joe Sax

    This book blew me away. Harrington picks a pretty fascinating niche of a remarkable period, and uses it to make compelling points about justice, society, and humanity's simultaneous aversion and addiction to civic violence. I also loved the way it drew from a range of primary sources, not just Frantz Schmidt's diary; it makes use of the remarkably complete, and often quite colorful, records of executions in 16th century Nuremberg. And it's quite well written -- even if it is also quite gruesome. [...]

  • Margaret Sankey

    Harrington uses the 16th century memoir of Nuremberg's executioner to reconstruct his world--helped by Frantz Schmidt's lifelong effort to control his status and regain the civic acceptance his local prince robbed from the family when he forced Frantz's grandfather to become a hangman in Bamberg and instantly made them all unclean. The details are insightful and revelatory--Frantz took a vow not to drink, which allowed him to get around being snubbed while highlighting his steady hands and respo [...]

    5/14/2015 PageADay Book Lover's Calendar:In the late 1500s, a public executioner in Nuremberg, Germany, began keeping a journal. During his 45 years in the profession, he executed 394 people and tortured hundreds more. Historian Joel F. Harrington uses the diaries as a way to explore Frantz Schmidt's life, revealing aspects of his medical practice, his marriage, and his growing sense that his day job did not line up with his religious beliefs. This unusual biography is also a portrait of Europe [...]

  • Andrew Davis

    The subject matter is fascinating, but it often feels like the author is simply trying to take up space by restating information that was covered at length earlier in the book, or by drawing conclusions about Meister Frantz and his feelings that simply aren't supported in any convincing way by the succinct and relatively impersonal journal that inspired this book. It's a collection of "stretches," of varying levels of believability, that goes on for far too many pages.

  • Karl Agius

    Fascinating read, gives a great insight into the life and times of Meister Schmidt. More direct excerpts and translations from the Schmidt diary would have been interesting, but the analysis does a magnificent job of explaining the world in which the diary was written.

  • Randy

    A well written and fascinating books. This is not a prurient look at torture and execution but an exploration of the 17th century and criminal justice mercy and society.

  • Rike

    It is really hard to judge this book. I know too much about the historical background and I am most certainly not part of the intended audience and there are things that I find inconsistent and could certainly be done better. Even though it is a great read. But let's start at the beginning.During his research, Harrington came across an unknown transcript of probably one of the most famous texts of early Modern Germany called "Das Tagebuch des Scharfrichters" (The executioner's diary) which is le [...]

  • Karen

    This is the fascinating story of Frantz Schmidt, the executioner of Nuremberg, Germany, in the mid- to late 1500's and early 1600's. His father was forced into the profession by chance, and Schmidt spent his 50 year career trying to restore the social acceptability of his family so that his children would not have to follow him into the same profession. The book makes use of a sort of diary that Schmidt kept, a record of the people he executed or punished, and what crimes they were convicted of [...]

  • Steve Kohn

    This book fills a large gap for me -- Europe, or at least Germany, in medieval times -- but it's unnecessary to provide a review, as a number of great ones have already been posted.I will say, to counter some reviews, that the book was engrossing and I had no problem staying all the way to the end. If anything, I wish it had been longer and more detailed about life in those times.Reading the following (on page 174) makes me wonder why we don't bring back some of their punishments for our own juv [...]

  • Holly

    An on-a-whim read that I'm really glad I picked up from the library. Setting aside my macabre interest in the deathly goings-on of 16th century executioners, I loved this book for the glimpse into history. To see how similarly (and how differently) the people of the era thought, compared to us today, was interesting. I found Meister Schmidt to be an engaging narrator, despite the brevity of his journal entries. He had a bit of wittiness and an unexpected self-taught moral compass. He was entirel [...]

  • Rebecca

    Well-written portrait of sixteenth and early seventeenth century Nuremberg. Harrington manages to portray Schmidt as a sympathetic character, someone forced into an unrespectable profession because his father was also an executioner.I won't say it's not gory, but most of the more unpleasant stuff is addressed in the first half of the book. Just because the nineteenth century romantics got pretty fantastical with their torture scenes doesn't mean that torture didn't happen


    An excellent introduction to 15th century life from the unusual standpoint of a Nuremburg executioner, with a strong moral view. Fascination from the point of view of his approach to life, which is surprisingly liberal and modern, together with the customs and life stories of those living and dying in late medieval Europe.

  • Justin Howe

    This book was right up my alley, and I would recommend to any history and true-crime buffs. As a character portrait of the life and time of Franz Schmidt, executioner, it reveals an oddly sympathetic character who yet embodies, exemplifies, and is invested in the barbarism of his times.

  • Shannon' Lee Hill

    I found his book to be quite interesting to read regarding the times it was set in. Like a whole different world. Not wanting to say too much, but if you're interested in history and of course the history of Executions, it's a good book to read!

  • Irina

    One of the best historical texts I've read in a while, taking the reader through a fascinating and tumultuous time through the lens of a single life while explaining the landscape of chaos and violence that led to the perceived need for more regular state executions.

  • Wieneke

    Intrigerend verhaal over het dagboek van een middeleeuwse beul. Hoewel het soms wat droog was, heb ik het vooral met veel interesse en fascinatie gelezen. Geeft een bijzondere inkijk in het rechtssysteem van die tijd

  • Christina Widmann

    Dieses Buch hat meine anfängliche makabre Neugierde schnell in Faszination und Staunen verwandelt. In Zukunft werde ich historische Romane mit anderen Augen lesen. nouw/cwidmann/die-ehre-des

  • Dieter Devlaeminck

    Entertaining book, difficult at time's, but that's mostly because English isn't my native language

  • Dustin Olinick

    I just finished listening to the audiobook, so I’d like to ask; are there illustrations in the printed/ebook formats? If so, I might need to buy one of those. Thank you in advance!

  • Rogue Reader

    Interpretive analysis of a 16th century executioner's log; remarkable representation of life and times. Good background for Potzsch's series.

  • Jett

    Fascinating and incredibly well written. I would read anything by this author, no matter the topic.
