The Crucible Have you conjured with the devil? If anyone accuses you of it than you are guilty until you give up another person’s name. In 1800’s in Miller’s puritan village there were Salem witch trails in which everyone was found guilty unless you accused another person. This book is mostly historically accurate and displays exactly how it was in the 1800’s. The aspect of religion, court, careers and martial life is the same as in real history. Religion plays a huge role in the puritan village as displayed in the play. The Puritans were religiously strict and always went to church on Sunday. People from the town who did not go to church were thought of people who had seen and talked to the devil instead of going to church. History tells us the same about the puritans. When John admitted to adultery with Abigail, the court took that as a major crime because it was one of there commandments. There is irony when the girls say that the devil is in church when the church is suppose to be holy so how can the devil come?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
