"A Witch's Sabbath."
The infamy of witch trials as Salem in America and Mora in Sweden helped turn opinion against witch beliefs. The cultural and political leaders of Europe gradually abandoned their support and exerted influence to end the craze. The prosecution of witches had all but ceased by the 1850s. The last execution for witchcraft in England occured in 1684, in America 1692, in Scotland 1727, in France 1745, and in Germany in 1775.
