Germany was where more male and female "witches" were killed by civilian tribunals around the start of the 15th century, according to a new book on the Inquisition -- about 25,000 out of a population of 16 million -- but the book's editor says that fewer people were killed in the Inquisition than is commonly believed.

This is an extremely simple dish to prepare, and although probably not documentable, it certainly could have been made in period. I tried it on a whim one day while grilling steak, and everyone loved it.
Slice the loaf of bread across its middle flatwise, so that you are making two flat halves each with maximum crust, as if it were a giant hamburger bun.
Lay out the bread with the crust side downward, and pour olive oil on it until the top is covered and the oil is soaking in.
Add a dusting of garlic, another dusting of black pepper, and (if you wish) other spices such as basil and oregano. Don't overdo the spices; you want the flavor of the bread to come through. In particular, if you use the oregano, use only a small amount because oregano has a very strong flavor.
Put the two halves on the grill, oil side up, on low flame, for just a couple of minutes until the bread has started to warm and the oil has had time to soak in. Make sure there are no dry spots on the top of the bread.
Now turn the bread over, turn up the flame to medium, and cook until the oil side of the bread just barely starts to toast to crispness.
Remove from grill, and serve hot. Feeds four hungry people or six nibblers.
