Example text

The connection between hypnosis and hysteria fascinated several leading scientists of the time, although not all scientists accepted this connection. In particular, Jean Charcot (1825–1893), head of La Salpetrière Hospital in Paris and the leading neurologist of his time, argued that hysteria was caused by degeneration in the brain. The work of two physicians practicing in the French town of Nancy, Hippolyte-Marie Bernheim (1840–1919) and Ambroise-Auguste Liebault (1823–1904), eventually won over Charcot, however.

In the sixteenth century, Teresa of Avila, a Spanish nun who was later canonized, explained that the mass hysteria that had broken out among a group of nuns was not the work of the devil but was the result of infirmities or sickness. ” She sought out natural causes for the nuns’ strange behaviors and concluded that they were due to melancholy, a weak imagination, or drowsiness and sleepiness (Sarbin & Juhasz, 1967). The culture so completely accepted the existence of witches and witchcraft that some perfectly sane people may have self-identified as witches.

Driving Away Evil Spirits Some scholars believe that holes found in ancient skulls are from trephination, a crude form of brain surgery possibly performed on people acting abnormally. Historians speculate that even prehistoric people had a concept of insanity, probably one rooted in supernatural beliefs (Selling, 1940). A person who acted oddly was suspected of being possessed by evil spirits. The typical treatment for abnormality, according to supernatural beliefs, was exorcism— driving the evil spirits from the body of the suffering person.
