Possession is something that for many of us, seems too incredible to contemplate, to outlandish to even consider or maybe to frightening to accept as real.

Throuhgout the ages, such cases often become notorious and many of them have become well known yet one seems to have slipped through the cracks, the case of Elizabeth Knapp.


What makes this case all more suprising is that it was meticilously recorded by the chief witness in the case, the preacher Samuel Willard. Willard was a man who in the autumn of 1671, witnesses one of his servants, Elizabeth Knapp transform from a happy, bright and popular woman to one afflicted by possession.


 


The case is all the more remarkable because rather than treat Elizabeth as a danger, Willard went out of his way to deal with this case in a balanced, scientific manner, completely against everything we presume. To discuss this case and more is author M R Gorga. His latest book, Demons Among Us covers the Knapp case in great detail with many details not having seen the light of day for almost two centuries.
