Answers
Prisoners are often tortured in Schongau during this time period because a criminal cannot be executed unless there has been a confession. Torture is often conducted in order to force this confession. The person who conducts the torture is often the hangman, in this case Jakob Kuisl. Jakob Kuisl is ordered to conduct torture by the village council and the court clerk.
