Post List of Scholars Executed for Exploring Christianity

Does anyone have a list of men and women severely punished (executed and/or imprisoned) for daring to think rationally about the Bible? I specifically mean theologians and Bible scholars, not scientists like Galileo. Some details of the "crime" might be useful as well.

Thomas Woolston -- questioned reality of Jesus miracles

Thomas Aikenhead -- Scot hung for suggesting Moses didn't write the Pentateuch
