In the 17th century, the Arctic region of Finnmark, located in northeastern Norway, experienced a surge in witch trials, with around 137 people accused of witchcraft within a span of less than a hundred years. Of those accused, 92 were executed or died while in custody. These trials were fueled by accusations, torture, and confessions, with women, particularly Norwegian and indigenous Sami women, being the primary targets. Various factors, including environmental hardships, religious influences, and misogyny, contributed to the hysteria surrounding witchcraft in the region. The history of these witch trials serves as a stark reminder of the abuse of power and the persecution of marginalized groups, shedding light on ongoing struggles with authority and prejudice.
