So, using Logos (I have 6), how would you research the HISTORY of the crucifixion? Basically looking for common practices, etc. For example, was it common for the one being crucified to be naked? That type of thing...

I look forward to the responses.

My first instinct is to go to Factbook and search crucifixion there.

I think this is the exact resource you are looking for. I have found more nuggets in it than I will ever be able to use.  It has given me a more full, complete perspective on the Crufixion.

Also look at The Cross of Christ by Stott.

I second this suggestion.  It usually goes on sale during Easter, but I guess not this year.

YesYes - I read this years ago and it is what first comes to mind with your question - and worth re-reading.... again..

I was reading this book yesterday for the first time. The chapters and excerpts I have read so far have been some of the most sobering and insightful academic reading I've read. Heartily recommend it.
