Crucifixion was a barbaric form of capital punishment that began in Persia. The Persians believed the earth was sacred, so death could not be allowed to come in contact with, and contaminate the earth. Therefore, criminals were fastened to horizontal beams of wood by iron spikes and suspended above the earth to die from exposure, exhaustion and suffocation. Death was painfully slow and publicly humiliating.
