Listen to Pat give the history of the real story behind the movie The Exorcism of Emily Rose. A young woman named Anneliese Michael experienced symptoms of what doctors said was epilepsy but what she and her parents came to believe was a possession by multiple demons. They found priests willing to perform exorcisms, 67 of them in all. When Anneliese died in 1976, the priests and the parents were charged with negligent homicide. The exorcisms took a significant toll on Anneliese’s body What Spooky Stories of Exorcism are told? Rebecca adds to the story by going into the claim that Anneliese saw the Blessed Mary, who asked her to choose if she wanted to suffer and die to serve as a call to those who have fallen in their faith or to have the demons removed through an exorcism and she could live out her life. What did she choose? Also learn about the trial and whether the priests and parents were convicted of her death. Keystone Archive. At trial. From left to right: Ernst Alt, Arnold Renz, Anneliese’s mother Anna, Anneliese’s father Josef. Debate We are saving the debate for Exorcisms until the final episode of the month, so there will not be a poll for this episode yet. But keep talking and thinking if you believe in possession and exorcisms. Was it right that her parents were charged?
