All of those powers are attributed to demons of the Goetia .He probably practiced ceremonial magick ,which is the foundation of summoning these demons .

Interesting .I've never heard of him .

I read about this a few days ago, it was interesting. If he has these powers why didn't he just teleport out and avoid the trial.

Apparently his 'predict the future' didn't work so well for him either....

Did 16th-century priest have 'superpowers' ?

No, he was just surrounded by gullible people...

Who is Goetia? Btw if such creatures/beings exist why would called them deamons? Im mean seems that they do more good then harm.

It seems the inquisitor was the far more enlightened individual and Pedro Ruiz Calderón was but another Grigori Rasputin.

Well,they're really spirits .They commonly get classified as "demons" ,but they are spirits,with many attributes and abilities .

The first book I ever got on them,classified them into good and more evil ,depending upon what it is they do .

More modern texts just say demons,but they really aren't demons.

I need to remember to not fall into these trappings,of using terminology people use,because they do not fully understand them.

There are 72 of them. They have different abilities ,some very specific,which all sound a lot like what this priest claimed he could do .

Many of the witch hunters in the 16th and 17th Centuries, like Cotton Mather and Matthew Hopkins collected all kinds of remarkable stories about the alleged powers of witches and demons, and I have no doubt that these were true--in least in the minds of most people at the time. Obviously torturing and threatening to torture the accused, which was the norm back then everywhere in the world, obtained some remarkable "confessions", as did the belief that confessing might result in more lenient treatment, or at least a more merciful death.

And Massachusetts today is considered one of the most "liberal" states. See what happens when people move their brains ahead just a few hundred years?

This is the famous Salem Witch House, where Sheriff John Corwin resided. Supposedly as he was hanging the witch Bridget Bishop, she cursed him saying that he would be given blood to drink. Corwin was found dead in this house, evidently choked to death on his own blood, and they say the curse has also done away with several other sheriffs of Salem over the centuries.

Every year in Salem they have a reenactment of the trial of Bridget Bishop at the Old Towne Hall, where she is of course found guilty, as well as tours of the Witch Dungeon and other historical sites.
