FLAGELLATION & THE FLAGELLANTS.

A HISTORY OF THE ROD

IN ALL COUNTRIES

FROM THE EARLIEST PERIOD TO THE PRESENT TIME

By THE REV. WM. M. COOPER, B.A.

(1869)

"The line between pain and pleasure is as thin as the tail of a whip"

This classic work is very much the definitive history of flagellation, whipping, spanking, flogging and other types of corporal punishment throughout history.

This book attempts to show that flagellation is more than mere punishment, it is also closely tied to discipline and eroticism, and has also been used for medical purposes (of course so was bleeding).

Saints, priests, nuns, criminals, slaves and queens all have been flogged at one time or another.

Cooper goes into great detail on the subject of whipping in ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome, the favorite parts of the body for whipping, flagellation and discipline in monasteries and convents, whipping in various prisons at different points in history, the use of flogging in the military and as civil punishment in Russia, flagellation of slave and criminals in America, whipping in Europe and the Far East, the flogging of slaves, military flogging, school punishments in boys and girls schools, and the "birch in the boudoir".

There is a chapter on the instruments of whipping, a selection of erotic poems on whipping, a also a section on eccentric forms of whipping such as that practiced on prostitutes.

Since it was written in a period of history in which flogging and a means of corporal punishment was very much the norm, the contents do not suffer from any "politically correct" censorship.

This book is extremely hard to find in print and cost many time more that this electronic version when it can be found.
