The witches of Chéu
The archives of the diocese attest to this: in Chéu, between the 6th and the beginning of the 19th century, the inhabitants of the village were obsessed with evil. To ward off evil, they hung crucifixes at every intersection or owls above barns. But when that wasn’t enough, they physically attacked those they thought were witches and accused them of witchcraft.
The “treatment” that the inhabitants inflicted on their victims was violent and without issue: The bewitched person was taken, they tied their feet and hands and they were thrown into the Armançon. If people sank, they were deemed to have been called back by God. If they floated, they were considered possessed, they were hung and burned… But in any case, the outcome was fatal!
It all ended in 1829, when a great fire totally destroyed the village… which was then considered “purified”.
