Editorial Reviews

Filmed on historic locations in the Middle East including the Church of the Holy Sepulcher and the Garden of Gethsemane in the old city of Jerusalem where Jesus was executed CRUCIFIXION investigates the historical record with a special emphasis on the death of Jesus Christ. Modern day footage will show real crucifixions that take place in the Philippines. Brief recreations will be used along with extensive CGI animation and CSI forensic-style graphics to illustrate the different types of crucifixion techniques throughout history and how this form of punishment eventually kills its victim.

4.0 out of 5 stars Man's Inhumanity towards his Fellow Men August 11, 2008
Verified Purchase
It was around Easter when I saw this history channel documentary discussing one of the supreme symbols of man's inhumanity towards his fellow men. This is not a program for those easily disturbed by depictions of violence and I would not recommend it to anyone with a hint of sadistic tastes.
The documentary follows the cruel punishment from Assyrian, some Persian, and Macedonian forerunners. Most of the documentary focuses on Roman crucifixion (especially Christ's crucifixion but also Spartacus's Rebellion, Varus putting down a Jewish revolt, Nero's persecution of Christians, and the fall of Jerusalem). Finally the martyrdoms of Japanese Christian converts in the sixteenth century, Nazi concentration camp hangings, and the genocide in Darfur are mentioned. Also mentioned are the symbolic uses of the cross ranging from a symbol of Christian love to the terror symbol of the kkk.
Left out are a number of post-Roman European uses and the extensive Islamic use of crucifixion (though Darfur is mentioned) and likely a number of others.
The actors and make-up team did a good job at hammering their point home and the reinactments are rather disturbing to watch. The opinions of the medical experts seemed very plausible. I should mention that some of the historical battle scenes come from other history channel documentaries but they are generally put in effectively.
Overall, a brutal but informative account of a symbol of both sacrifice and human evil. A friend of mine who saw the program agreed that it was interesting but very graphic. This is certainly not for everyone.

This is a very brutal and visceral reenactment of a Roman crucifixion. The amount of physical trauma a human body sustains from a crucifixion is explained in layman's terms and in graphic detail. After watching this you will realize how inhuman, brutal and savage crucifixion is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievable human could do this! March 12, 2014
Verified Purchase
A historical perspective of crucifixion as a means of capital punishment (causing intense suffering before death) that includes Jesus but is not specially about Jesus, but is about crucifixion as governmental retribution against people it does not like and wants to make an "example." For Christians it brings a deeper understanding of what Jesus accepted to live by grace and will increase an experience of it deep in one's own spirit. Includes the use of crucifixion by governments both before and after Jesus' times as well. If you thought Jesus was "meek and mild" this understanding of voluntary submission to this torture might change your mind.
