  Johannes Junius - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Johannes Junius (1573- August 6, 1628) was the Burgomeister of Bamberg, famous today for his letter written to his daughter from jail while he awaited execution for witchcraft.
Junius became Burgomeister in 1608 and remained in that position until his arrest, which came shortly after his wife had been executed on similar charges.
In his confession, Junius relates that in 1624, while in a difficult financial state, he was seduced by a woman who later proved to be a succubus and threatened to kill him unless he renounced God.

 Encyclopedia :: encyclopedia : Johannes Kepler   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-24)
Johannes Kepler (December 27, 1571 – November 15, 1630), a key figure in the scientific revolution, was a German mathematician, astronomer and astrologer of famed brilliance.
Born prematurely, Johannes is said to have been a weak and sickly child, but despite his ill health, he was precociously brilliant - he often impressed travelers at the inn [aforementioned] with his phenomenal mathematical faculty as a child.
There is some evidence this association was of ancient origin, as Plato tells of one Timaeus of Locri who thought of the Universe as being enveloped by a gigantic dodecahedron while the other four solids represent the "elements" of fire, air, earth, and water.

 Condemned Man's Testament
With these words of resignation to a grotesque and undeserved fate, Johannes Junius, a burgomaster, or chief magistrate, of the city of Bamberg, began a letter of fairwell to his daughter.
Junius was able to smuggle the letter out of prison with the assitance of one of his guards.
Junius cautioned his daughter to hide the letter, "else I shall be tortured most piteously and the jailers will be beheaded." He further instructed her to save herself by fleeing the center city of Bamberg immediately.

 Johannes Acronius - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Johannes Acronius (died 1627) was a German Reformed theologian.
He is less known by scientific works, than by his part in the quarrel between Arminians (Remonstrants) and Contra-Remonstrants.
He was the son of the Frisian preacher Bernard Acronius, and was taught by Zacharias Ursinus and Franciscus Junius in Neustadt an der Hardt, today Neustadt an der Weinstrasse.

Very seldom did a witchcraft trial reach so highly placed a person, although perhaps a dozen cases of even more prominent victims could be cited.

The idea that the persecutions were confined to a number of half-crazed old women is completely false, and the victims included many persons of prominence in public life.
To take but a single instance, in the mass persecutions in Bamberg between 1609 and 1633, when 900 persons were burnt, one of those killed was Johannes Junius, a burgomaster of the city.
Under torture, he confessed to witchcraft; asked to name accomplices, he denied having any, but, tortured again, named some.
