&aalite It depended upon the country. Witches were burnt in some countries - Spain was a biggie. But in England, they tended to be hanged. Only those accused of heresy were burned at the stake here. Bizarrely, witchcraft was never included in heresy charges.

&thamisgith Can you believe that I wrote this, then immediately went in the bath? Me! A Pagan! I sank. And yes, I was in the home straight. I just posted the tenth. :)

&orangepunch Yes, there are still occasional deaths due to individuals being accused of witchcraft. It's horrible to know that this continues in the world today, but it does.

Awful that things like this happened... And I guess in the right places could still happen, huh?
