Narrative of Witchcraft
A compulsive and chilling account of actual poltergeist phenomena thought to have been affected by the agency of witchcraft, a small family disturbed by dark manifestations, scratchings, wounds, violent transportations, the malice of a distinctly supernatural kind.
The almost diary-like and matter of fact document begins in December 1761 with the manifestation of some unseen entity scraping at the children’s window, a sinister force that soon made its own way into the house. What follows for the ensuing months shows the appalling physical and mental effects of these visitations upon the family, the unquiet minds of the observers and the witch-hunt mentality slowly taking hold.
