As the criticism mounted in early autumn, several clergymen asked Increase Mather to draft a treatise on the problems associated with the evidence used in preliminary examinations and trials.Mather read his work entitled Cases of Conscience Concerning Evil Spirits Personating Men, Witchcrafts, Infallible Prooft of Guilt in Such as Are Accused with That Crime to a gathering of clergymen on October 3 The ministers were concerned that "men be informed what is evidence, and what is not." They particularly wanted Mather to deal with "specter evidence, and a certain sort of ordeal or trial by the sight and touch."In preparing the manuscript, Mather contributed nothing original to the controversy, yet he lent his considerable prestige to the growing chorus of opposition.Do you seek to know if your curriculum vitae meets requirements of cv writing services?
