Procedings at the appeal court in Viborg

Karen Anderskone of Vittrup and the cook Kirsten Joergens of Estrup village

were sentenced for witchcraft at Malt District Court.

But the law ordered that no one sentenced for witchcraft could be executed if

the sentence was not confirmed by the noble judges at the appeal court in

Viborg.

This picture of an appeal court is from the book Glossarium Juridico-Danicum

from 1641. The Danish Royal Library.
