The Salem Witch Trials The Salem Witch Trials has impacted society and the government today, even with their wrongful executions. The background of how the Salem Witch Trials began was simple and appeared to be an easy decision to make. The Puritans were a God fearing group and believed they needed to punish those accused of witchcraft to fulfill God’s word.

S ocial L ens T he views society had on witches and witchcraft impacted them because of what was spoken of biblically. The Puritans were a very religious group and they believed in their society anything that was remotely close to witchcraft was viewed as being the devil’s work. While there were mentions of wizards in the biblical days, women were viewed as weaker vessels the devil could easily use.

    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.
