  Executioner - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A judicial executioner is a person who carries out a death sentence ordered by the state or other legal authority, which was known in feudal terminology as high justice.
A common stereotype of an executioner is a hooded medieval or absolutist executioner.
Native societies in Asia, Africa, The Americas, and the Pacific seem rarely to display such prejudice towards executioners, even when, as in North America, there is significant and vocal opposition to the death penalty itself.
