PROCES WRÓŻBITY BAZYLEGO MAKSYMOWICZA (1741)
The trial of a diviner Bazyli Maksymowicz (1741)
Languages of publication
An unusual witch trial took place in Przemyśl in 1741. One Bazyli Maksymowicz – a village diviner, herbalist and healer – was accused of consorting with witches and deceiving people for his own profit. The local people would ask him, for example, to send evil spirits, find stolen belongings or illnesses. The one who helped him out in that was Maryna Kuliczka, a witch from a village called Załuże. Original, so-far unpublished court records of that trial have been kept in the National Archive in Przemyśl.
