That wiping thing isn't just Medieval. Third-world nations, especially the Arab ones, still do this. It`s why they`re highly insulted if you offer your left hand to shake.

hah holy hand, thats crap. There is actualy a historical reason behind people treating their left and right hands differently though

In medieval times the left hand was the one people used to wipe their asses, so they used their right hand for everything else

If i was going to slap somebody and they turned their head forcing me to use my super special awesome golden hand....i'd just kick them instead

Incidentally "Turn the other cheek" is a lot more loaded than people think.

Most people think it means "If someone slaps you, turn away".

It goes further though, technically meaning "If someone slaps you or tries to slap you (on your right cheek) let them slap your left".

The reason for this is that someone wouldn't slap you with their right hand, because it is the holy hand. They`d only slap you with their left.

Thus by showing them your other cheek, you are forcing them to use their "Holy" hand, and you force them to think about what they are doing.

Basically "Go ahead, if you think this is the right thing to do, slap me with your holy hand".

Most religious Jews at the time wouldn`t.

It`s basically a free lesson in morality you`re handing out, not just a "don`t fight back".
