Arthur Miller’s book, The Crucible, tells the story of a town’s obsession with accusing innocent people of witchcraft. All the accusers were young females who claimed they were attacked by demonic specters. Members of the community supposedly sent out these evil spirits, but in reality, the girls were doing it as sport
There are still fairly serious discrepancies between Davis’s actual historical monograph and the depiction in the film. Most importantly, we see the trail in Toulouse in the film opened for the public while the fact is that “sixteenth-century criminal justice is always secret; there are no spectators until the sentence is read.” Moreover, the monograph positions Bertrande as being opposed to having an imposter for a husband as she openly rejected him as soon as she realised that he was not Martin
sources have come up with that are said to have cause in the trials and the way they played out. Some of the reasons that cause the trials to go how they went is the weather, religion, and lust. Through out my research over the topic I learned that the judges in charge of the trials let fear and conspiracy control their judgment in the trials and caused several innocent people to die.

She’s tender?” (48) Elizabeth Proctors love for John is challenged, but it still remains strong in light of John’s infidelity. “I do not judge you. The magistrate sits in your heart that judges you.

States v. Sanders, 41 M.J. 485 (1995). It was found that there was no restriction made by the military judge to the jury about whether or not to consider certain evidence over other evidence making it where the judge did not err in his instruction. The judge in a case is to instruct the jury what and what not to take into account for the ruling of the case.

a cold-blooded killer. When his wife, Emilia, reveals his plot, Iago murders her. He straight-up kills his wife, the woman he supposedly loves, all because he saw her as an obstacle. Does Iago feel bad about killing Emilia? Nope, he doesn’t feel an ounce of remorse because he’s a guy and most of them don’t care about women. Iago is quoted in Act One, Scene One as saying “Heaven is my judge, not I for love and duty”. Iago should know that, if Heaven is his judge, he is going nowhere b... ..
