Ordeal by Touch

Ordeal by touch is a means of identifying a witch. Ordeal by touch was used in the interrogation and trial of accused witches in Europe, the British Isles and the American colonies. The ordeal called for the accused to touch a victim, someone who claimed to have been bewitched or afflicted by the accused. If the fits or problem vanished, that meant the accused was guilty because they had taken the Curse back into themselves.
