Today - 380 years ago - Johannes Junius was burned at the stake

It was a sunday, and its not clear whether our mayor was murdered in ZEIL AM MAIN or in Bamberg - at the Schönleinsplatz, which was one of the favoured witch burning locations - just in front of the City Wall in those days.

The destiny of Johannes Junius is very well documented: we have his farewell-letter to his daughter Veronica, the protocolls of the inquisition commison, the Plan of the MALEFIZ HOUSE and even the list of his denunciations.
