WITCHES AND THEIR PUNISHMENT
Witches were forbidden in Medieval times, especially in England. Sorcery however was very popular and something had to be done about it. It made Medieval people feel uneasy especially since England and Europe were considered a Christian nation. Witches were seen as devilish. most natural disasters were blamed on them because people believed through "magic" potions and spells the witches triggered the disaster.
The most common torture for a witch/Sorcerer was been burnt at the stake. Some other forms of torture included been left naked, legs and arms spread out, under the sun. This resulted in extremely bad sun burns. Another form of torture for witches was been hanged.
