The Witch Trials
By Liam Dixon
Prayer Test- The accused recited a verse from the bible, if recited perfectly they were innocent.
Touch Test- A possessed person would be blindfolded and touched by multiple people including the accused witch. If they reacted when touched by the accused, the accused was a witch.
Witch’s Marks - Check the alleged witch for a mark given to them by the devil.
Pricking and Scratching Tests- The accused was pricked or scratched until the witch hunter found the mark.
Incantations- The accused would attempt to order the devil out of a possessed person.
