Hanseatic cities
  • In Stralsund , priests are burned to Stralsund ( Papenbrand thom Sunde ): After the citizens of the city of Stralsund had a dispute with their chief clergyman, the lord of the St. Nikolai Church and the Tribsees priest , Cord Bonow , he plundered on October 6th at the head of an army of 400 warriors, whom he had recruited from his aristocratic relatives, the Stralsund Feldmark . Not only are cattle stolen, they are also murdered and pillaged. This behavior outraged the people of Stralsund, especially since they were also mocked by some clergymen. The very next day the people of Stralsund rebelled, first and foremost the members of the porters' trade who were most affected by the murders, and brought the clergy shackled to the judge in Neustadt . The prisoners are driven into a house by the crowd, which is to be set on fire by them. This can only be prevented by the council by pointing out an impending danger to the neighboring houses. Thereupon three clergymen, the chaplain of St. Nikolai, the pastor of St. Marien and the pastor of St. Jakobi , are singled out from the crowd of clergy and burned on a stake . Bishop Rudolf von Mecklenburg-Stargard then proclaimed the ban against the mayor, the city council and all Stralsund residents. All spiritual acts in Stralsund are prohibited by an interdict . Pope Gregory XII. finally lifts the ban at the request of the citizens after they have erected an atonement cross at the place of the cremation and a chapel .
