In french, it’s called the witches sabbath, and many presumed witches were burnt for having participate to these dances 12

:-) Per Johansson replies: "Yes, even here in Sweden many women were burnt or beheaded. But, never from the upper classes, only peasants and the like... Thanks for Your comment, Anne! "
