One of the most famous Witches in Virginia's history is Grace Sherwood, whose neighbors alleged that they killed their pigs and increased their cotton. Other charges were followed and Sherwood was brought to trial in 1706.

The court decided to use a controversial water test to determine its guilt or innocence. Sherwood's arms and legs were tied up and thrown into a body of water. It was thought that he was drowned, he was innocent; If he swims, then he was guilty. Sherwood did not get drowned and was found guilty of being a witch. He was not killed but was kept in jail and for eight years.
A satirical article (supposedly written by Benjamin Franklin) about a witch test in New Jersey was published in 1730 in the Pennsylvania Gazette. This brought to light the ridicule of some magical allegations. In the new world, the witch was not long before the death of frenzy and the laws were passed to help the law to be wrongly accused and guilty.

History of Witches

Images of Witches have been seen in various forms throughout history - from evil, hot women with a hot hose revolve around a bundle of boiling liquid, which roam the sky on the bushes wearing the hinged hat. In pop culture, the witch is a generous, nostalgic, suburban housewife, a strange teenager who is learning to control her powers and is one-third of the attractive sisters battling with bad powers. The true history of Witches, however, is dark, and often for Witches, fatal.

The origin of the witch

The early Witch was the people who practiced a magician - they used magic spells and called spirits for help or brought change. Most of the Witches were considered as sinners who worked for the devil. However, many people were merely natural doctors or so-called "intelligent women" whose profession's choice was misunderstood.
It is not clear whether the secret came when the historical scene came, but one of the early records of a witch is in the Bible in 1 Samuel's book, which was written between 931 BC. And in the year 721 BC, this story tells that King Saul called the spirit of the dead prophet Samuel so that he could help defeat the Philistine army.
The Witch stopped Samuel, who predicted the death of Saul and his sons. The next day, according to the Bible, Saul's son died in war, and Saul succumbed to himself.
The verses of other Old Testament condemn Witches, such as quoted quotations 22:18, which say, "You will not suffer the witch to survive." Additional biblical paths use caution, using devotion, contemplation or Witches to contact the dead.

Malleus Maleficarum

Witch Hysteria actually caught up in Europe in the mid-1400s, when many accused Witches confessed, often under torture, for various kinds of evil behavior. Within a century, Witches hunters were common and most of the accused were executed on the stake or hanging.
Between 1500 and 1660, 80,000 suspected Witches were killed in Europe. About 80 percent of them women were in harmony with the devil and were full of lust. Germany had the highest wizard execution rate, while the lowest in Ireland was.
The publication of Malleus Maleficarum, written by two well respected German Dominican people in 1486- probably due to viral witch Witches mania. The book, known as Hummer's Hummer, was essentially a guide about identifying, hunting and interrogation of the witch.
Malleus Maleficarum labeled the magician as hypocritical, and soon was trying to remove the Witches living between Protestant and Catholics. For more than 100 years, the book sold more copies of any other book than in the Bible except in the Bible.

Salem Witch Trials

Since the witch hiatus in Europe has decreased, it grew into a new world. Perhaps the most famous witch trials were in 1692 in Salem of Massachusetts. The Salem Witch Trials began when two sick girls claimed to be Witches and accused the magicians of their neighbors. Eventually, about 150 people were charged and 18 were killed.
Massachusetts was not the first of 13 colonies, although obsession about Witches. In Windsor, Connecticut was the first person in America for Alsay Young Magician in 1647. Prior to the final Witch trial of Connecticut in 1697, thirty-six people were accused of a magician in that state and 11 died for crime.
In Virginia, people were less worthless about Witches. In fact, in 1655, a law was passed in Lower Norfolk County, so that he could make a false allegation against any of the magicians. Yet, the magician was a matter of concern. About two dozen Witch tests (mostly women) occurred in Virginia between 1626 and 1730. No accused was killed.
