||Left,The Witch of Endor
conjures up the prophet Samuel at the request
of Saul. 1681.
: Some psychic
investigators believe that the Witch of Endor
might not have been a witch or a medium in the
modern sense of the word. According to these
investigators, the biblical witch functioned
much like the ancient Grecian oracles.
In the original Hebrew of the biblical texts,
the woman is identified by the phrase,
"There is at Endor a woman Behabalth-Ob."
