Facts on Salem Trials
Over 150 people (78% women) were accused of witchcraft in Salem, Massachusetts, 1692.
19 people were hanged (14 women and 5 men), and one man was pressed to death because he would not say whether he was guilty or innocent.
Nobody was burned at Salem, but they did burn “witches” in Europe.
Evidence used against suspected witches to prove they were on the devil’s side: accused of harming animals, making people sick, pinching people as they slept, unladylike behavior (yelling at their husbands in public).Slide14
1804-1864 Salem, Mass.
One of Hawthorne’s ancestors were among the judges of Salem Witch Trials (only judge to not repent his actions)
Hawthorne was not a Puritan!!!
He looked with distaste upon “the whole dismal severity of the Puritan code of law”.
He called his stories “moral allegories of the heart”; deep psychological complexity, Puritan influence.Slide15
