—Salem Witch Trials—
The Puritans were a group of Christian extremists living in Massachusetts in the seventeenth century. The Puritans were very set in their ways, traditions, and beliefs. The Puritans believed in witches, and their ability to do harm unto others. The Puritan definition of witchcraft was entering into an agreement with Satan in return for abilities to do evil. Thusly, the Puritans considered witchcraft a sin because it negated God's supreme authority and a punishable offense because said witch could summon the devil in its shape to perform evil.
