Adriano Prosperi recreates a crucial period in the history of the death penalty in the West, when legal concepts of vengeance and justice merged with Christian beliefs in repentance and forgiveness of criminals. Squaring these two sets of values and emotions wasnot simple then or now, and they continue to complicate state-sanctioned homicide.
