What a time to be a woman! And I’m not talking about 2017. The Salem Witch Trials were “a series of hearings and prosecutions of people accused of witchcraft in colonial Massachusetts between February 1692 and May 1693”. Talk about mass hysteria. Although a sad time in history, it is especially important to remember. It shows the dangers of “isolationism, religious extremism, false accusations, and lapses in due process”. This quiz is equally important as it’ll test your knowledge on how well you remember what you were taught about this period in time. And if you don’t know or don’t remember, maybe curriculum needs to change around these parts. Inside this fascinating quiz, you can determine some of the examples of execution, even some of the symptoms people experienced that led them to their deaths. If you don’t know much about this event, there are many books and articles to read. If that’s not up your alley… pop in an episode of Charmed, a show about witches, or download Practical Magic, a story about two witch sisters. Another classic witch movie, The Craft. Entertaining to say the least. Watching these films can better help you understand the isolation and prejudice surrounding the witch. If you come out with a great score, we know there’s a higher power surrounding your intelligence! Or maybe you have a connection to energy out there. Regardless, this quiz is an interesting reminder of a dark period in the United States history but one that paved the way for reform, organization, and eliminating mass hysteria…
