torture teminology; good cop bad cop

hi, all.this is my first time posting a question so I hope this works.
I'm working on a story and need to know what the classic good cop-bad cop interrogation technique might have been called before the slang cop came in, especially medieval or renaissance times. I've seen various techniques including that one used and referred to in trial transcripts, inquisitors manuals etc, where types of torture are named, and the various degrees have names, but have never run across names for the subtler mind games..anything will help. there are no "cops" in my world! I really need an alternative.. and having read several of these posts, I have HOPE! Thanks in advance!
Sheila
