For perhaps too general information see:

Lofland, John. "The Dramaturgy of State Executions," in State Executions
Viewed Historically and Sociologically, ed. Horace Bleackley and John
Lofland (Montclair NJ: Patterson Smith, 1977): 275-325.

Sharpe, J. A. "'Last Dying Speeches': Religion, Ideology and Public
Execution in Seventeenth-Century England." Past and Present 107 (1985):
144-67.

Spierenberg, Pieter. The Spectacle of Suffering: Executions and the
Evolution of Repression: from a Preindustrial Metropolis to the European
Experience.  Cambridge: Cambridge UP, 1984.
