England in this era had some positive aspects that set it apart from contemporaneous continental European societies. Torture was rare, since the English legal system reserved torture only for capital crimes like treason [28] —though forms of corporal punishment, some of them extreme, were practised. The persecution of witches began in 1563, and hundreds were executed, although there was nothing like the frenzy on the Continent. [29] Mary had tried her hand at an aggressive anti-Protestant Inquisition and was hated for it; it was not to be repeated. [30]
