"Crusade": 1208-1229 (number unknown): killed in the Hussite Wars (number unknown): killed in the French Religious Wars: 1562-1588 (number unknown): killed in the English-Spanish Wars (number unknown): killed in the Thirty Years War: 1609-1659 (number unknown): killed in the Massacre of Drogheada, Ireland, on 11 September, 1649 (number unknown): killed in the Sack of Wexford, Ireland on 11 October, 1649 (number unknown): killed in Northern Ireland: (current political-religious war) ****************************************** Due to its seeming popularity as a method of execution in England, perhaps an explanation of "hanged, drawn and quartered" is in order: The victim was hanged, by being pushed off a ladder for about a two foot drop (this would not, ordinarily, break the neck) to hang there, slowly strangling. Before death, however, the executioner would cut the victim down, and then open the body and "draw out" the intestines, stomach, etc while the victim was sill living, usually making sure the victim could enjoy the process. The limbs and head were then cut off. This was the customary punishment for treason, and was invented for the benefit of the Scots patriot, William Wallace, who was the first to recieve it. In many of the cases listed above, "treason" constituted the refusal to accept the King/Queen of England as Head of the Church. It is my intention to also compile a listing of Protestants killed by Catholics, and a listing of "witches" burned by both. Contributions to all these lists are solicited. The rules are: 1) You must have the NAME of the person killed. If all that is known is HOW MANY were killed, this will be acceptable. 2) You must have a DATE. Day-month-year is preferred, but month-year or year-only is acceptable. 3) You must have a LOCATION. Town-nation is best, but nation-only is acceptable 3) You must REFERENCE your contribution. 4) Please follow the format as you see it above. nb: I am not, at this time, compiling a list of Jews killed for their faith. To list the six million names from the Holocaust of World War II alone would be too much, and beyond comprehension. They are NOT forgotten! Neither are the martyred Baha'is in Iran, nor the Muslim/Christian/Jew problems current in the Mid-East.....nor the Muslim/Hindu troubles, nor the........well, add your own here.
