About the Film
Join the Mütter Museum for this screening of Häxan: Witchcraft Through the Ages, the 1922 Swedish horror-documentary masterpiece exploring witchcraft, demonology, Satanism, and the persecution of women in the Middle Ages. Häxan uses a series of vividly depicted vignettes of demonic possession, sexual perversion, and a satanic Sabbath to elucidate connections between medieval witch hunts and fin-de-siècle diagnoses of female hysteria.
Part of our “,” celebrating the 125th anniversary of the novel’s publishing, the film will be paired with a brief introductory lecture exploring the links between medicine and the occult.
