Main Ritual

Synergy Circle and friends asks you to join us in main ritual. Our FPG 2017 Samhain rite will be Honoring Our Ancestors. We hope to honor all people who have been killed or tortured for accusations of their beliefs. We will also have a place in the ritual to honor all of our departed loved ones.

In the sixteen hundreds in many countries people were accused of witchcraft many were not practioners but the hysteria was rampant and some people wanted to settle old scores, or gain lands held by the accused. Many were hung, burned or tortured to death. The new colonies were not exempt from this hysteria. The most well-known and documented trials in the US were held in Massachusetts.

In January of 1692 the events, which led to the Witch Trials, actually occurred in what is now the town of Danvers, then a parish of Salem Town. Launching the hysteria was the bizarre, seemingly inexplicable behavior of two young girls; Betty Parris, and Abigail Williams. In February 1692, Magistrates Jonathan Corwin and John Hathorne examined three accused women. Many more men and women were jailed and tried on the basis of the belief in spectral evidence, which is the power of the accused to use their invisible shapes or specters to torture their victims. We have taken actual trial transcripts from actual documents of the trial and share a snap shot in our history in our Samhain Rite.
