Michael Servetus

1553 – The civil court of Vienne, France, condemned Michael Servetus to be burned at the stake for heresy, sedition, and rebellion. He had called both the Trinity and orthodoxy into question with his books On the Errors of the Trinity and Christianity Restored. Servetus escaped and was burned in effigy the next day.
