I stumbled upon this great specific word some days ago, which was defined somewhat the lines of: "the pain experienced from crucifixtion." Has anybody ever stumbled upon this or others of the like? It is strange I cant find it and it is beleaguering me Angel

I know the verb and adjective, but I've never heard a noun.


The noun is excruciation, but I have never heard it used.

Per (and other on-line versions of dictionaries), 'excruciating' is derived from the Latin word for cross (crux, as in crucification), and means something that is painful, agonizing, tormenting, etc. Like DragOnspeaker, I think this is likely the word you are searching for.
