A little background on the story ...

One of the most grievous episodes in church history was the witch craze that began as the brainchild of two monks, and supported by the Church in the 1500's. As false teaching spread, thousands of women were martyred for sins no greater than their God-given desires.

Lee Strobel, in his book, A CASE FOR FAITH, cites the church's history, including the witch craze, as one of the top reasons skeptics give for refusing to believe in Christ. In every skeptic's mind, the witch trials loom large, hinting that Christians are prone to hysteria more than rational thought, and are capable of great violence if threatened.

But while skeptics point their fingers at a tragic past, few will pause long enough to consider the greater message of the witch hunts. Christians, including the Pope, realized they had erred and fought to correct the false teaching and stop the killings. The result was that women began to achieve social justice on a widespread scale, and grew closer to Jesus' ideal of a woman set free to worship Him with all of her mind, soul and strength. Christians may have been swept along for a time with the madness of their age, but they also recognized it as such and fought valiantly to end it and save women from tyranny forever.

Today, modern women enjoy a greater freedom both intellectually and spiritually because medieval Christians dared to confront the worst in themselves, and to grasp for the grace of Christ when they were least worthy.
