Why Accusations Of Witchcraft Occurred In Colonial New England
[ send me this paper ]
5 pages in length. For contemporary society, it seems a bit difficult to believe some of what transpired in centuries gone by. One such memorable flicker on America's timeline is that of the witch hunts of colonial New England. Men, women and even children, who were branded worshippers of Satan and witchcraft, were deemed a horrid threat to society; in an attempt to rid the town of their presence, presumed devotees of the devil were put to death. Why was this the case when there was little if any proof of this being the truth? There were a great many reasons, but none so powerful as the threat of female independence had at that time. The writer discusses why the fear of women's emancipation was the foremost reason for the colonial New England witch hunts. Bibliography lists 4 sources.
