Fire

The Pit Post-Fire

Fire

has long been used as a method of punishment and a weapon of war.  In Old Babylonia, under good King Hammurabi, anyone caught looting a house on fire could be thrown into that same conflagration.  Justice was swift.  A priestess who left the quiet of the cloister for the noise of a tavern could also be burned to death.  She was meant to pray, not play. Hammurabi reigned 1700 years B.C., so the principle of lex talionis, or retributive justice, is comprehensible.  Incest was frowned upon even then.  Under the Babylonian code, Law 157 states: If a man, after his father’s death, has lain in the bosom of his mother, they shall both of them be burnt together.  Law 195: If a son has struck his father, his hands shall be cut off. The Babylonians weren’t putting up with a lot of bad behavior and nonsense.
