2021: Marking Five Hundred Years of Witchcraft Persecutions


Recommended Posts

Next year - in 2021 - it will mark five hundred years since Pope Leo the X issued a papal bull enabling a religious court to execute people convicted of witchcraft. 


The so-called "burning times" may not have seen millions murdered as popularly believed, but it did mark a time of horror and terror for thousands of innocent people. Some may have been simply victims of spite, others perhaps had knowledge deemed forbidden by the Church. Some may have been ancestors of the Traditional Craft.


I thought it might be a date worthy of note, and thus of mentioning here.
