You stand accused of wanting to learn more about the Salem witch trials! A sad chapter of American history, the Salem witch trials were a time of paranoia, hysteria, requital, and religious fervor gone awry. Flora and Stecco discuss the cultural climate leading up to this period, including witch hunts and persecution in general. How did a town in colonial Massachusetts end up killing so many men and women? What superstitions did people believe made a person a witch, and how did they enact their justice upon them? You’ll be found guilty of learning a little something in this spectral evidential episode of the podcast! (A Law School’s Perspective, Witch Trials in History, Visit Salem)
