Very scary clothes
What contemporaries are dressing on Halloween and the shints, our ancestors had almost casual clothes. We tell about the horror costumes and accessories from the past.
Suit of the Player Doctor
Until the XVII century, doctors trying to curb the plague, did not have any special clothes. Only in 1619, the main court Medic Charles de Lorm, who served in consistently by the French kings of Henry IV, Louis Xiii and Louis XIV, offered a complete model of robes, which should have been protected from black death, and the latter literally scare. Frightened, however, for the most part surrounding: a plague doctor appeared nearby, it means that death goes nearby.
The idea of a costume de Lorm invented on the basis of the cut of the leather armor of light infantry. Therefore, in addition to a mask with a beak and glass eyes, a plague robe included a long raincoat, started from the neck and ending in an ankle area, narrow pants, gloves, high shoes and a wide-headed hat, under which a hood was worn with a peeline. All this magnificence has been made of waxed skin or, at a thin end, from a tight canvas impregnated with wax to maximize the doctors from the pathogen.
Since in the Middle Ages it was believed that people were infected with Chuma, because inhale the "pathogenic smell" to kill him, in the "beak" put a shock dose of the odorous medicinal herbs, spending only two small holes for ventilation. Defended the bird attribute and the accurate public – from the smell of the doctor himself, which in preventive purposes is indispensable to chewing garlic. In addition, the plague doctors were worn around Plemander – something like Laneanka on a chain in which all the same medicinal herbs put.
Putured a terrible picture of a survey cane (so as not to touch the patients with his hands) and self-defense from especially inserting patients, and another scalpel for opening the bubons.
In the XIII century, barefoot people began to walk in southern and central Europe in strange caps from the closer or solid paper (capital). These braids they whipped themselves. People called beaky, or flaglalates (from Latin Flagelree – "Whive, Schish, Torture"), and their high and narrow hats and survived their creators at all. The movement of the flavored first was in great honor from the then population who loving ascetic, but then for some reason it began to condemn and in 1349, the Pope Clement VI flaglalantia banned. But the unusual caps remembered, covered with cloth and began to wear on those who were convicted on the death penalty.
Surprisingly, later similar hats, but already with a cloth, descended lower shoulders, and eye slits, will be associated with the executors of the executive. Although the massive use of the mask executioner – myth. As a rule, these people worked without any masks, everything in the city and so knew the servant of death in the face, he had no need to hide. At least it is true until the end of the XVIII century. Although one reliable case, when there was a mask on the wrap, the story is still known: it was the execution of the English king of Charles I.
Later, the capital began to wear during the celebration of Easter and Passion. Such headdresses still put on the Bosnorman member participants in Spain on the passion week, which are called nazarenos – "swinging sinners". Interestingly, representatives of Ku-Klux Clans were very similar to the capirots – the most that they fought not only for the purity of the American nation, but also against Catholicism, which also belongs to the idea of creating capital.
Pants from late man
But this terrible custom was distributed only in Iceland and is quite short – during the 18th century. Nubrooke is underwear made from. Skin deceased. Translated from the Icelandic word Náribók means "necropodstones". Gang such an accessory – the task is not easy. First, you need to enlist the resolution of a person to use his skin after death. The latter should be male, and besides married. Secondly, wait for the funeral and, by typing courage, dug the corpse from the grave, and then so masterfully contemporary from it the skin, starting just below the PUP and the most tips of the toes, so that there is no fact that the holes, but even scratch or Core.
The third point will be theft of the coin at the distressful widow – for Christmas or Easter. The coin must be put in the scrotum of the nubrooke together with the Galdravtaram paper written on the piece of paper – magic manual sign, which were used in Iceland’s magic in the early Middle Ages. The case is done: it is enough to wear necropodstones and wait for the flow of money (for their involvement, the whole procedure and flooded). And both for yourself and for their descendants. And in order not to get into hell after death, it is necessary to find a wishing to get pants from the dead and transfer them to the new owner. And there was its own procedure. In general, the terrible witchcraft was at Viking. About other things made from the dead, we wrote in a review "Memory that will not die".
The UNCDC (or his high-quality replica), which has come down to this day, is kept in the Museum of Icelandic Witchcraft and Black Magic in the village of Hawlmavik (Iceland).
Today, leprena is included in the list of so-called forgotten diseases that are relevant except in the countries of the Third World. And in the Middle Ages, nobody was insured. Neduga could not be treated, and he always led to death. Therefore, patients fang in the church in advance. In addition, leprosy was a legitimate reason for divorce. And the unfortunate climbed clothes and issued another so that infected it was easier to learn. As a rule, it was a heavy and long hooded hooded and hat.
The patients also had to wear a horn, a rattling or bell to warn about their approximation with loud sounds. Hading the characteristic bryatsan, those in fear ran away. The lepers forbidden was to enter the church, restaurants, touching someone else’s things, talking to people, standing against the wind, washing in running water and drinking it. If these strict rules are not fulfilled, the patient was placed in leprosarium, from which he no longer.
