"После того эти же саккальцы пошли в Гервен, схватили там Гебба, бывшего их судьей, отвели вместе с прочими датчанами в, свои замок и истязали его и других жестокими пытками; растерзали им внутренности, вырвали сердце из груди у еще живого Гебба, зажарили на огне и, разделив между собой, съели, чтобы стать сильными в борьбе против христиан; тела убитых отдали на сьедение собакам и птицам небесным.

Жил в то время в Дорпате вместе с братьями-рыцарями собрат их, священник Гартвик. Его посадили на тучного быка, так как и сам он был не менее тучен, вывели из замка и стали решать жребием, кого богам угодно избрать в жертву, священника или быка. И пал жребий на быка и тотчас его убили, а священнику, следуя воле богов, сохранили жизнь, но нанесли большую рану, которая впрследствии была вылечена".

Генрих Латвийский, Хроника Ливонии

"According to Tylor, civilisation cannot develop independently, but is, rather, taken over from more developed peoples. For savage peoples to guarantee their progress requires that they should have centuries-long contacts with Europeans. Those who undergo this process move towards the developmental stage of Europeans.

Presentation of the savages in one or another light was part of the justification process of the social action. Thus, the ‘beastly savages’ could be either exterminated (as their beastly imagery created the sufficient distance from the Europeans), or domesticated (in an effort to bring ‘civility’ to them, and thereby subordinating them – by education and religious captivation of their souls).

Slovtsov, Karjalainen and Dunin-Gorkavich have reported the eating of the hearts of recently baptized Khanty and Mansi peoples by the Nenets in the 1720s. The eating of the hearts of killed Christians by pagans constitutes a regular element of baptismal records. According to the Livonian Chronicle by Hendrik, Estonians cut the heart out of bailiff Hebb’s chest, cooked it over the fire and ate it when sharing with everybody.

Ostyaks remember how the Cossack Ataman (Headman) Kakaulin, arrived at a Samoyed village. The chief of Samoyeds wanted to receive him properly and invited the ataman to his chum. The village chief then asked his younger daughter to undress in the presence of Kakaulin and showed her naked body which was fat and whitish. Then the chief killed his daughter immediately, cut her breasts off, tore her heart out of her body and put all that in the pot over the fire, in order to please Kakaulin with such a delicacy".
