List of people burned as heretics

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This is a list of people burned after being deemed heretics by different Christian Churches. The list does not attempt to encompass the list of those executed by burning for other reasons (such as victims of witch hunts or other persecutions). The laws of the Catholic Church forbade any inquisitor to kill people accused of heresy.[citation needed] Some laws allowed the civil government to employ punishment.[1] After they were convicted by the Church, they were turned over to the local government for execution because of religious restrictions that kept ecclesial clergy from actually carrying out the executions.[citation needed]
