Renfrewshire Witch Hunt 1697

A wonderful re-enactment was performed in Paisley town centre today of this historic event. Full marks to everyone who took part.

The story tells the tale of a young girl, Christian Shaw who fell ill after an argument with one of the household maids and the maid is then alleged to have put a curse on the girl.

 Christian's condition worsened, and after being seen by several doctors who could not cure her, she accused the maid and six others of witchcraft.
