The Salem Witch Trials.
1. let’s start at the beginning – and this is when the town doctor was called to the Parris household to examine young Betty and Abigail, who was writhing and yelping in pain, for no apparent reason.
Was it significant that these horrible events began from the actions of two girls? We also know that there was a clear gender bias in terms of many of the accused, as well. Why do you think many of the accused were women, as well? What was going on here
2. explain what you feel to be the one or two most significant of the major theories as to why Betty Parris and Abigail Williams initially pointed their fingers at three women, once the town doctor diagnosed them as being bewitched. Was it gender, boredom, sudden fame, Native Americans and the Devil, ergot poisoning, political or economic forces, religion, fear, or some other explanation as to why these terrible events began?
Furthermore, please explain why this continued until twenty people had died (nineteen by hanging and one who was crushed to death.) It is important to explain your conclusions with strong evidence that will make your argument clear. Note that you may find one (or more) explanations to be sufficient to explain the initial diagnosis, but that different explanation might be more appropriate to explain why this literally turned into a “witch hunt” for eight months. Basically, I am asking why this began, and then why did it continue for so long?
