The truth about Catalonia's witches and witch-hunts
Sònia Casas from the Barcelona-based history magazine Sàpiens joins Alan Ruiz Terol and Lorcan Doherty to separate fact from fiction when it comes to the story of witch-hunts in Catalonia. As a recent Sàpiens issue dedicated to the subject puts it: "They weren't witches, they were women". Pau Castell, a historian at the University of Barcelona who has dedicated his career to studying witches talks about his research. "Filling the Sink" recreates the seventeenth-century trial of Elisabet Cerdana, which took place in the village of Castellterçol in central Catalonia.
