Witches weren't burnt in England. Not a single one. Heretics were. And witches were burnt in Scotland.

I was made aware in previous comments. I'm just to lazy to change the name. Thanks for your concern though.

Its very good. A very sad subject, but very good. I have been interested by the witch trials and have some facts for you that you may not know. The Inquisition would have shaved all the hair off her body and she would have been dressed in a very thin white gown, because it was beleived that the girl could have hidden spells in her hair and clothes. Also, the way they would have arranged the wood around the center of the bonfire, most of the men and women would likely have sufficated on smoke before the flames even touched them. In Salem however, it was custom to hang the women rather than burn them. Its all very horrible but thoughs are the facts.

This is a nice picture.

One gripe that I have about it... no one was burned during the salem witch trials. They didn't burn witches in America, they hung them.

But historical inaccuracies aside, its a nice pic.

thank you I was made aware of my lack of knowledge in history though and I attempting to rectify it by taking a real history class.

Meh, its cool. Witches were still burned in Europe, so I could easily imagine this as a scene in 15th century England.

Wonderful art...
The only mistake I see is the fact that the Salem hysteria victims were hanged, not burned, that was more Europe's thing.
Although I did find out today that a "Negro servant woman" apparently intentionally set fire to a house and was consequently burned at the stake for her arson.
