The Crucifixion Of Jesus
The Crucifixion Of Jesus Christ
A number of Roman authors such as Livy, Cicer, and Tacitus describe Crucifixion in great detail, although the New Testament gives very little detail.
We read, in Luke 23:33, "And when they came to the place called The Skull, they crucified him there, and the robbers, one on his right hand, and the other on his left."
In this illustration of Roman Crucifixion, the Patibulum is separate from the Stipes Crucis. Jesus was nailed to the Patibulum first, and then the Patibulum lifted and attached to the Stipes Crucis. The Romans possibly employed a horse with a rope and a pulley, since this was the usual method used to move heavy weights.
