The first hanging for witchcraft in New England was in , after the witch hunts had already abated in Europe, though a peculiar outbreak in Sweden in —76 bore some similarity to that in New England.
Although the lurid trials at Salem now in Massachusetts continue to draw much attention from American authors, they were only a swirl in the backwater of the witch hunts.
The outbreak at Salem, where 19 people were executed, was the result of a combination of church politics, family feuds, and hysterical children, all in a vacuum of political authority. Prosecutions of witches in Austria, Poland, and Hungary took place as late as the 18th century. The responsibility for the witch hunts can be distributed among theologians, legal theorists, and the practices of secular and ecclesiastical courts.
The theological worldview—derived from the early Christian fear of Satan and reinforced by the great effort to reform and conform that began in —was intensified again by the fears and animosities engendered by the Reformation of the 16th century. The Protestant Reformation and Catholic Counter-Reformation heightened the fear of witchcraft by promoting the idea of personal piety the individual alone with his or her Bible and God , which enhanced individualism while downplaying community.
Moreover, just as the growth of literacy and of reading the Bible helped spread dissent, so did they provoke resistance and fear. Both Protestants and Catholics were involved in the prosecutions, as the theology of the Protestant Reformers on the Devil and witchcraft was virtually indistinguishable from that of the Catholics. More differences existed among Protestants and among Catholics than between the two religious groups, and regions in which Protestant-Catholic tensions were high did not produce significantly more trials than other regions.
Because accusations and trials of witches took place in both ecclesiastical and secular courts, the law played at least as important a role as religion in the witch hunts. Local courts were more credulous and therefore more likely to be strict and even violent in their treatment of supposed witches than were regional or superior courts.
Where central authority—i. Ecclesiastical and civil authorities usually tried to restrain witch trials and rarely manipulated witch hunts to obtain money or power. The witch executions occurred in the early modern period, the time in Western history when capital punishment and torture were most widespread.
Instead, they questioned whether the witch intended to inflict harm or not. Current scholarly estimates of the number of people who were executed for witchcraft vary from about 40, to , In addition to known witch trials, witch hunts were often conducted by vigilantes, who may or may not have executed their victims. In Scotland, for example, cattle murrains were blamed on witches, usually peasant women, who were duly punished.
A popular method called "scoring above the breath" meant slashing across a woman's forehead in order to remove the power of her magic. This was seen as a kind of emergency procedure which could be performed in absence of judicial authorities. Modern scholarly estimates place the total number of executions for witchcraft in the year period of European witch-hunts in the five digits, mostly at roughly between 40, and 60, see table below for details , [a] The majority of those accused were from the lower economic classes in European society, although in rarer cases high-ranking individuals were accused as well.
On the basis of this evidence, Scarre and Callow asserted that the "typical witch was the wife or widow of an agricultural labourer or small tenant farmer, and she was well known for a quarrelsome and aggressive nature. In England and Scotland between and , a series of Witchcraft Acts enshrined into law the punishment often with death, sometimes with incarceration of individuals practising or claiming to practice witchcraft and magic.
Kate Nevin was hunted for three weeks and eventually suffered death by Faggot and Fire at Monzie in Perthshire , Scotland in The final Act of led to prosecution for fraud rather than witchcraft since it was no longer believed that the individuals had actual supernatural powers or traffic with Satan.
The Act continued to be used until the s to prosecute individuals such as spiritualists and gypsies. The act was finally repealed in The last execution of a witch in the Dutch Republic was probably in In France the last person to be executed for witchcraft was Louis Debaraz in The result of the trial is questioned by prof. Janusz Tazbir in his book. Both women have been identified as the last women executed for witchcraft in Europe, but in both cases, the official verdict did not mention witchcraft, as this had ceased to be recognized as a criminal offense.
There is no documented evidence of witch-hunting in India before The earliest evidence of witch-hunts in India can be found in the Santhal witch trials in The Chhotanagpur region was majorly populated by an adivasi population called the Santhals.
The existence of witches was a belief central to the Santhals. Witches were feared and were supposed to be engaged in anti-social activities. They were also supposed to have the power to kill people by feeding on their entrails, and causing fevers in cattle among other evils.
Therefore, according to the adivasi population the cure to their disease and sickness was the elimination of these witches who were seen as the cause. The practice of witch-hunt among Santhals was more brutal than that in Europe. Unlike Europe, where witches were strangulated before being burnt, the santhals forced them ".. The British banned the persecution of witches in Gujarat, Rajasthan and Chhotanagpur in the s—s.
Despite the ban, very few cases were reported as witch-hunting was not seen as a crime. The Santhals believed that the ban in fact allowed the witches to flourish. Thus, the effect of the ban was contrary to what the British had intended. During —58, there was a surge in witch-hunting. This can be viewed as a mode of resistance to the British rule as part of the larger revolt of Witch-hunts still occur today in societies where belief in magic is prevalent.
In most cases, these are instances of lynching and burnings, reported with some regularity from much of Sub-Saharan Africa , from Saudi Arabia and from Papua New Guinea. In addition, there are some countries that have legislation against the practice of sorcery. The only country where witchcraft remains legally punishable by death is Saudi Arabia. Most of the accused are women and children but can also be elderly people or marginalised groups of the community such as albinos and the HIV -infected.
The leader of the witch-hunt, often a prominent figure in the community or a "witch doctor", may also gain economic benefit by charging for an exorcism or by selling body parts of the murdered. In many societies of Sub-Saharan Africa , the fear of witches drives periodic witch-hunts during which specialist witch-finders identify suspects, with death by mob often the result. Witch-hunts against children were reported by the BBC in in the Congo  and in Tanzania, where the government responded to attacks on women accused of being witches for having red eyes.
Audrey I. Richards , in the journal Africa , relates in an instance when a new wave of witchfinders, the Bamucapi , appeared in the villages of the Bemba people of Zambia. When the villagers arrived they would view them all in a mirror , and claimed they could identify witches with this method.
These witches would then have to "yield up his horns"; i. The bamucapi then made all drink a potion called kucapa which would cause a witch to die and swell up if he ever tried such things again. The villagers related that the witch-finders were always right because the witches they found were always the people whom the village had feared all along.
The bamucapi utilised a mixture of Christian and native religious traditions to account for their powers and said that God not specifying which God helped them to prepare their medicine. In addition, all witches who did not attend the meal to be identified would be called to account later on by their master, who had risen from the dead, and who would force the witches by means of drums to go to the graveyard, where they would die.
Richards noted that the bamucapi created the sense of danger in the villages by rounding up all the horns in the village, whether they were used for anti-witchcraft charms, potions, snuff or were indeed receptacles of black magic. The Bemba people believed misfortunes such as wartings , hauntings and famines to be just actions sanctioned by the High-God Lesa. The only agency which caused unjust harm was a witch, who had enormous powers and was hard to detect. After white rule of Africa, beliefs in sorcery and witchcraft grew, possibly because of the social strain caused by new ideas, customs and laws, and also because the courts no longer allowed witches to be tried.
Amongst the Bantu tribes of Southern Africa, the witch smellers were responsible for detecting witches. In parts of Southern Africa, several hundred people have been killed in witch-hunts since Industrial Soundtrack For The Urban Decay traces the origins of Industrial music, taking you on a journey through the crumbling industrial cities of Europe to America's thriving avant-garde scene.
