Not sure where to post this, but it's a half decent history article.


A SCOTTISH town is to mark Halloween by granting official legal pardons to 81 supposed witches executed during a frenzy of religious fervour about 400 years ago.

Descendants of some of the women put to death in Prestonpans, just east of Edinburgh, will attend a ceremony to mark the witch hunts in the town during the late 16th and 17th centuries.

Thanks for posting Sanctum, really interesting articles. I always like those kind of story. I must admit I loved this quote



"It's too late to apologise, but it's a sort of symbolic recognition that these people were put to death by hysterical ignorance and paranoia."


So when is the catholic church going to pay for all those stupid and ignorant crimes against humanity?
