Adults and teens are welcome at this online presentation by Dr. Angela Haas, Associate Professor of History at MWSU.

Bubbling cauldrons. Secret meetings. Scary old women. Evil curses. These are some things still associated with witches today, but this stereotype emerged hundreds of years ago. Historians now agree there is no evidence that any “witch cult” actually existed. Nevertheless, in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries an estimated 50,000 people (mostly women) were put to death for the crime of witchcraft. What led people to believe in witches? And why were women more commonly targeted in witch trials? This presentation will address these questions as well as the terrible fate of those accused of witchcraft.

This is a Facebook premiere event, no registration needed. Dr. Haas will attend this video presentation with us, and can answer your questions submitted in the chat.
