In 1534, a radical religious sect known as Anabaptists staged a rebellion in the city of Munster, attempting to overthrow the local government and establish their own mini-state. The 3 leaders of the Anabaptist Rebellion were brutally tortured and publicly executed. Their corpses were placed in cages and hung from the steeple of St. Lambert Church for decades. Though the remains were removed, the cages are still displayed to this day.
