Abstract

This is the confession and sentence of Maria Margaretha Senfftin, a single, 23 year old, Lutheran. During the night between the 1 and 2 of April 1762, she set fire to the house of wagon master, Johann Fürster. Half of the building was destroyed before the fire could be put out. She had stolen money and knew she would come under suspicion for that crime. She planned to claim that the money must have been lost when the furntiture was pullled from the burning building. For the crime of arson, Senfftin was beheaded with the sword.
