Women In The Bible - Witch of Endor Poster
Women In The Bible - Witch of Endor Poster
The Witch of Endor, sometimes called the Medium of Endor, was a woman who called up the ghost of the recently deceased prophet Samuel, at the demand of King Saul of the Kingdom of Israel in the First Book of Samuel. After Samuel's death and burial with due mourning ceremonies in Ramah, Saul had driven all necromancers and magicians from Israel. Then, in a bitter irony, Saul sought out a witch, anonymously and in disguise, only after he received no answer from God from dreams, prophets, or the Urim and Thummim as to his best course of action against the assembled forces of the Philistines. Following the orders of the king, the woman summons the ghost of Samuel from the abode of the dead, to give him advice. This, however, is not given. After complaining of being awakened from his long sleep, the prophet's ghost berates him for disobeying God, and predicts Saul's downfall, with his whole army, in battle the next day, and adds that Saul and his sons will join him, then, in the abode of the dead. Saul is shocked and afraid, and the next day the army is defeated and Saul commits suicide after being wounded. This wonderfully detailed image is from the book Women in Sacred History by Harriet Beecher Stowe, copyright 1873. Of the illustrations in the book, the publisher writes: "... In every case an accurate copy in oils was painted by a skilful artist, and this, together with photographs from the original pictures, the best impressions from the best engravings, etc., formed the basis on which Jehenne, the artist-lithographer, founded his conscientious work."
