hideback:

L’enfer Cabaret, Boulevard de Clichy, Montmartre, Paris

Built circa 1890; demolished circa 1952.

Entertainment inside the “inferno of hell” included musicians dressed as devils and interior volcanos that spewed scented lava of molten gold. 

After the “cabaret artistique” was demolished, the site became a Monoprix retail store.

The treatment of rival denominations by Christians was almost always brutal. The following event during the Münster Rebellion is typical, the only untypical element being the modern vestiges of the brutality.

An Anabaptist army from Münster was defeated in 1536 by the Catholic Prince Bishop of Münster, Franz von Waldeck. The Anabaptist king of Münster, John of Leiden, was captured, along with two other Anabaptist leaders. Each of the three was attached to a pole by an iron spiked collar. Their bodies were ripped with red-hot tongs for an hour.

After the burning, their tongues were pulled out with tongs. They were eventually killed by burning daggers thrust through their hearts. The bodies were then placed in cages hung from the steeple of St. Lambert’s Church, and the remains left to rot. The three cages remain attached to the steeple to this day.
