The Llewellyn Encyclopedia

Term: burning times

DEFINITIONS

Burning Times: Term used to describe the oppression, repression, torture, and killing of accused Witches during the middle ages and on. Many of the accused, if not most of them, were not involved in any Witchcraft practices. The number of people so tortured and killed during this period is controversial, with “experts” giving totals ranging from under 100,000 to millions.
