As we have seen, all executions were not only public but participation was also encouraged, sometimes with sergeants inciting the population, 1 and with the most serious cases culminating with apparently disorganised popular participation that took over the completion of the punishment, as happened in 1492 with the body of the person who attempted to assassinate the king. 2 The eagerness of the authorities to involve the people combined the wish to transmit the fear with which to educate the population, who witnessed the fate of those who broke this order, and at the same time joint and accessory participation between authorities and people in a kind of ceremony of reconstruction of the shattered order and, with that, of reconciliation with God, who, according to the accepted account, dictated the order of society.
