Brotherhood of Death

Who were the mysterious Brotherhood of Death who it’s said accompanied the condemned to their executions in the Middle Ages?   All information appreciated.  This image is copyright free and is said to be authentic.

In Roman times, a person dressed as a god of the underworld would walk in to the arena to finish off a wounded gladiator….is this a cultural echo of those times in the medieval era?

All information greedily accepted.
