This geo-graphic, which looks at witchcraft trials and executions in Europe from 1300-1850, caught my attention because the students in my online modern drama class just finished discussing The Crucible. www.statista.com/chart/19801/people-tried-and-executed-in-witch-trials-in-europe/ As the accompanying article notes, though, trials and executions for witchcraft continue around the world, just not in Europe any more. For those interested in learning more about Europe's witch hunts, this podcast from the University of Texas's "15 Minute History" series is short and worthwhile: 15minutehistory.org/podcast/episode-55-witch-hunting-in-early-modern-europe/ Happy Halloween!
