Unlikely. Christianity is just 2000 years old and in its first three or four centuries it had no such power to do things.

There were Catholic nations that did witch burnings, it was particularly popular in Germanic nations, but I'm skeptical you have much understanding of actual history. Witch-hunts aren't even a purely Judaeo-Christian concept. You find them in Han Dynasty China, pre-Christian Africa, and elsewhere.
