Belmont‘The Capital Crime of Witchcraft’

On Sept. 19 at 7 p.m. at the village’s Corner Meeting House, the Belmont Historical Society is sponsoring a program on the Salem Witchcraft Trials. The program is titled “The Capital Crime of Witchcraft: What Primary Sources Tell Us.” With Halloween coming up in October, this should be both an interesting and timely program. On first impression, the witchcraft trials of the Colonial era may seem to have been nothing but a free-for-all, fraught with hysterics. The program presenter, Margo Burns of Manchester, explores an array of prosecutions in 17th century New England, from first formal complaints to arrest warrants, indictments of formal charges to death warrants, and the reversals of excommunications years after the fact, which demonstrate how methodically and logically the Salem Court worked. The program focuses on the witchcraft trials of 1692 and 1693, when 19 people were killed, but also examines a variety of other colonial witchcraft cases in N.H. The program is free and open to the public. Handicapped parking is available. For more information, call Christine at 524-8268.
