I would do some research on the Salem Witch Trials to prove this point. You might even look into some of the commentary sections of The Crucible particularly in the beginning.

Many researchers believe that what the girls experienced was more of a reaction to a mold that had been in some of the rye bread. I have attached an article for you to look through. It would position you to use science or medicine as the last outside factor. I think it would compliment your religion paragraph because the people were acting out of what they thought was going on, not based on what really was going on.

Miller also confesses that he altered the story for entertainment's sake but based in on true historical facts. Proctor and Abigail in real life were 60 and 11. That their relationship was ever as involved as Miller suggests is quite the stretch. But, John Proctor really was hung.
