Depends on the males. This Carvelli dude’s crucified guys don’t make me want play for the other team, but I begin to understand them that do.Actually some of us do because we rely on the titles to see what interests us.
For example, pictures of crucified males don't belong in the "Crucified Women" thread.
Bobinder has posted a wonderful portrayal by Mahashiva of Alice Kiss as Eulalia of Merida (the 'real' Eulalia!)EULALIA OF BARCELONA TORTURED ON A X-SHAPED CROSS
View attachment 869448
The daughter of a noble family, Eulalia lived near the city of Barcelona. During the persecutions under Diocletian, governor Dacian arrived in the city intent on enforcing the decrees. Eulalia went to the city and confronted the governor, denouncing him for his persecution of Christians. Unable to dismiss her eloquent appeals, Dacian had her stripped and flogged. Afterwards, she was tortured with various implements until she would deny her beliefs or die. Her wounds were burned with torches, but the flames blew back against her tormentors. She prayed that God would take her to Heaven, then died.
A dove is supposed to have flown forth from her mouth following her death, then a sudden snowstorm covered her mostly nude body like a garment.
It is traditionally believed that her tortures culminated in her crucifixion on an X-shaped cross, and she is depicted with this cross as the instrument of her martyrdom. However, it has been posited that she was instead publicly tortured on an X frame and left there after she died.
