Quote by pandemonium91 Christ, there's a monastery here that was supposedly built only after the carpenter's wife was buried alive in a wall (the whole building would crash otherwise) ಠ_ಠ Dayum, people, you scary! Or they read Poe's Fall of the House of Usher and decided to mess with people for the lulz. A real ghost would be fun to see tho.
I think it's mentioned she changed her appearance after every time she was "killed", lol. I wonder if the rumored "if she floats in water, she's a witch" tests really happened, I've always thought they were kind of silly because there was literally no way of getting out alive - floating/swimming = witch, drowning = not a witch but dead anyway.
Haha, yep, a lot of interesting legends here. There's supposedly an underground tunnel below my town that connects three major churches, catacombs and a passageway to the nearest mountain and the fortress there lol. Would love to explore that someday. xDD
Well, I did some research when I wanted to write about the prosecution of women in Dark Ages. Took 'Maleus Maleficarum' from the library and had to close it after three pages because I had a sudden urge to burn the book and then burn it again. The whole thing was basically orchestrated that way that no matter what you said or did, you were a witch and you got burned. Heaven forbid you had a cat or a broom at home - bam, you were a witch. If you cried or talked and begged during torture, you were a witch. Even if you had moles and birthmarks all over your body, you were a witch. And that floating thing, too. It was just insane what they did to those who opposed them. Or if you had a jealous neighbor who wanted to get rid of you.
