This is from a book by David A. Plaisted called, “Estimates of the Number Killed by the Papacy in the Middle Ages and later” You can download the entire document here.
Some of the text from that document:
Here are some of the places where figures about religious persecutions are given. Dowling in his History of Romanism says
“From the birth of Popery in 606 to the present time, it is estimated by careful and credible historians, that more than fifty millions of the human family, have been slaughtered for the crime of heresy by popish persecutors, an average of more than forty thousand religious murders for every year of the existence of popery.”
— “History of Romanism,” pp. 541, 542. New York: 1871.
Commenting on this quote, a fundamental Baptist web site says the following:
For example, it has been estimated by careful and reputed historians of the Catholic Inquisition that 50 million people were slaughtered for the crime of “heresy” by Roman persecutors between the A.D. 606 and the middle of the 19th century.
This is the number cited by John Dowling, who published the classic “History of Romanism” in 1847 (book VIII, chapter 1, footnote 1). Only seven years after its first printing, it could be said of Dowling’s book, “it has already obtained a circulation much more extensive than any other large volume ever published in America, upon the subject of which it treats; or perhaps in England, with the exception of Fox’s Book of Martyrs.” Clark’s Martyrology counts the number of Waldensian martyrs during the first half of the 13th century in France alone at two million. From A.D. 1160-1560 the Waldensians which dwelt in the Italian Alps were visited with 36 different fierce persecutions that spared neither age nor sex (Thomas Armitage, A History of the Baptists, “Post-Apostolic Times – The Waldensians,” 1890). They were almost completely destroyed as a people and most of their literary record was erased from the face of the earth.
From the year 1540 to 1570 “it is proved by national authentic testimony, that nearly one million of Protestants were publicly put to death in various countries in Europe, besides all those who were privately destroyed, and of whom no human record exists” (J.P. Callender, Illustrations of Popery, 1838, p. 400). Catholic historian Vergerius admits gleefully that during the Pontificate of Pope Paul IV (1555-1559) “the Inquisition alone, by tortures, starvation, or the fire, murdered more than 150,000 Protestants.” These are only small samples of the brutality which was poured out upon “dissident” Christians by the Roman Catholic Church during the Inquisition.

WELCOME to FLAT EARTH MATCH (International Flat Earth dating and community network)
Hello. My name is John Perri. I am admin and your fellow FE of the revolution. Over the past several months, FE has not only opened my eyes to truth, but has liberated my mind with a new vision and that is this: I believe FE means more than just flat earth. It is a journey, a discovery and a revealing to what has been hidden. It is an epiphany and sudden realization of all truths interconnected through the rabbit hole. FE is the awakening light which we have all seen and followed to escape the bondage and pollution’s of the matrix. Flat earth match is more than just dating. We are a family and growing community of believers uniting together under the banner of truth as we are bonded by the same commonality. We are a safe and fun zone for the like minded to potentially meet the love of your life, to grow in knowledge and to establish and strengthen new friendships. Welcome to FLAT EARTH MATCH:)
The Tuesday-Friday conference honoring Monsignor George Lemaitre is being held at the Vatican Observatory, founded by Pope Leo XIII in 1891 to help correct the notion that the Roman Catholic Church was hostile to science. The perception has persisted in some circles since Galileo’s heresy trial 400 years ago, even though the observatory and Catholic universities around the globe have produced top-notch science over the centuries.
Lemaitre’s theory was known as the “primeval atom,” but it is more commonly known today as the big-bang theory.
“He understood that looking backward in time, the universe should have been originally in a state of high energy density, compressed to a point like an original atom from which everything started,” according to a press release from the Observatory.
