I think they might burn for a period of time but most die from smoke inhalation.<quoted text>
Since it is a heresy that they would, not at all.
"When this method of execution was applied with skill, the condemneds body would burn progressively in the following sequence: calves, thighs and hands, torso and forearms, breasts, upper chest, face; and then finally death. On other occasions, people died from suffocation with only their calves on fire. Several records report that victims took over two hours to die. In many burnings a rope was attached to the convicts neck passing through a ring on the stake and they were simultaneously strangled and burnt."
Whoever wrote about eternal hell-fire and damnation must have been a sadist. Would God really condone such wickedness?
