Recently, my Lutheran father made the assertion that the Witch Burnings were aimed at Protestants by the Church and “ that’s why Protestants are mad at the Catholic Church. “
I know that both sides were burning witches and persecuting heresies. Calvin’s Geneva and 17th century Germany comes to mind.
My basic question is: Is there any truth to what my father said and who killed more “ witches “; us or the Protestants?
My guess is the Protestants killed more than we did as the majority of the trials were held in Northern Europe, England and Scotland.
