The Provost and the Witch in Aarhus Cathedral 1643

Former Bishop Morten Madsen passed away last night at the age of 47.

Provost Erik Agersen sees himself as the natural heir to the episcopal office, the only problem being the young maid Caroline Madsen.

King Christian IV had previously suggested that Agersen could count on the post, but it has now come to the king’s attention that Erik Agersen may have been bewitched by the young Caroline Madsen.

Your role as the king’s special emissary is to aid his men in identifying the potential witch residing in the Vicar’s household. Your objective is to prove or disprove Caroline Madsen’s involvement in witchcraft and dark magic.

Caroline Madsen is the main character in the outdoor escape room game Provsten og Heksen in Aarhus Cathedral.

The king is determined that all witches must be exorcised and, if necessary, sentenced to death by beheading or witch burning. Often, the decapitated were dismembered and set up on “wheels and steep” to frighten and warn others.

Just two years ago, Maren Splids was burned at the stake in Ribe after being convicted as a witch. Torture had to be used to force her to tell the truth and confess.

Can you save Caroline Madsen from being burned at the stake?

The Provost and the Witch in Aarhus Cathedral. An outdoor escape room game inspired by real events that happened during the reign of King Christian IV.

In fact, witch trials in Denmark date back to 1693, when Anne Palles was convicted and executed on Falster.
