  • John Hale (June 3, 1636 – May 15, 1700), was the Puritan pastor of Beverly, Massachusetts, during the Salem witch trials in 1692. He was one of the most prominent and influential ministers associated with the witch trials, being noted as having initially supported the trials and then changing his mind and publishing a critique of them. His book, A Modest Enquiry Into the Nature of Witchcraft, shown above, was published post-humorously, two years after his death. The book basically provides an alternative Christian theory for what actually happened in Salem in 1692. Hale's theory was that demons impersonated the accused and appeared in their forms to the afflicted. He probably most likely changed his views about those executed for "being witches" due to the fact that his own wife (the second one) was accused as being a witch, though never prosecuted.
