Description

The Constitutio Criminalis Carolina (shortened to Carolina) is recognised as the first body of German criminal law (Strafgesetzbuch). It was also known as the Halsgerichtsordnung (Procedure for the judgment of capital crimes) of emperor Charles V. The introduction of the Carolina in 1532 created the conditions for the mass execution of witches in Germany 1580 - 1680. Often this first German criminal law is also known as Bureaucratic terror. Innocent people fell into the clutches of a merciless, like a clock running extermination apparatus, from which there was usually no escape. Woodcut engraving after an original by Hans Burgmaier the Younger (c. 1500 - 1559) from the “Klagspiegel”, published in 1881.
