werewolf witch trials

The werewolf witch trials stemmed from the infamous witch trials which were trials accusing people of witchcraft and thus a pact with the Devil. The werewolf witch trials were a slight deviation on this theme in countries were the fear of werewolves was far greater than the fear of witches. The trials accused people of taking the shapes of werewolves and slaughtering farm animals, or in some cases humans. The accused were then forced to falsely admit -under torture – that they had a pact with the Devil, and in many cases because of this forced – false – confession, they were sentenced to death. The werewolf witch trials were particularly popular in Estonia in the 1600s.

    Regardless if they were wolves or witches, many were stoned, hung, drowned (it was said that if you floated you were a witch, regardless the person would inevitably drown), and a few were burned. Like stated above many were false confessions to stop the torment, but it really only brought on more. Many of the accused were pointed out by children who had done wrong to the person and didn’t want to get into trouble or by other adults who had wronged the person they were accusing or been the wrong-doer. Either way, it was someone pointing a finger at someone else and killing many innocence for the sake of clearing their own conscience of some stupid deed they did themselves.

    @Diamond: a) Why did you feel the need to post practically the same thing 3 times? b) What the hell has that got to do with the topic? c) Go back to Twilight please, you’ll be accepted more.
    @Topic: I always hated the witch trials, lots of innocent people were killed because of the gree of so-called “hunters”.

    My great great great grandma was killed in that and no she was not a werewolf. I’m the first werewolf in my family. My werewolf bite me by accident because my other friend (a vamp) didn’t know the my werewolf friend was a werewolf so they started to fight. And it seems dumb but as a human I got in the middle of them just as my werewolf friend lunged to bite my vamp but got me instead. I was that human that was opened mind and accepted every living thing 🙂
