"Martyrdom of Saint Cucuphas" - Hans Brun - 1502
Cucuphas is the patron saint of Hunchbacks & petty thieves.  
His hagiography states that he was first roasted over a fire after being covered in vinegar and pepper, but heavenly intervention saves him from injury and the fire kills his executioners instead. His jailers are subsequently converted to Christianity after they find Cucuphas in his cell illuminated with heavenly light. The next day, he is flagellated with iron whips and God again intervenes, killing the Prefect Maximianus by setting fire to his carriage. Rufus, the new Prefect, decides not to mess around with torture and immediately orders his throat cut.
