Interesting article by Frederica Mathews-Green:

For anyone interested in reading further on the subject, I'd recommend Fr. Roman Braga's book,  "Exploring the Inner Universe".

Great article. Being from the former USSR, I know very well about the phenomenon of "wounded torturers." I used to know older people who had participated in repressions of the 1930-s- 1950's and showed very clear signs of deeply wounded psyche.
