When it comes to conjure what passes through my mind is the movie “The Conjuring.” The events of the movie itself were based on the memoirs of the famous Demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren . They are the founding members of the New England Society for Psych Research; and as far as I know the only civilians that have been sanctioned by the Catholic Church to be able to perform an exorcist. Otherwise the Catholic Church usually leave that task to specially trained Priests. The Warrens are the authors of many books about the paranormal; their private investigations and ghost hunting activities. Among the published memoirs were cases that received national attention. The Amityville Hauntings; that investigation involved a variety of individuals including college students, Police Officers, Medical Doctors, Clergy and other paranormal investigators. The Amityville Hauntings were also the subject of various Hollywood movies as well as numerous documentaries and studies into the paranormal activity based upon the events that took place in Amityville, Long Island. Then there is the event that is depicted in the movie The Conjuring and the spin off movies.
The Warrens run an occult museum in the back of their residence in Monroe Connecticut; they have collected many artifacts and cursed objects. Among them the famous raggedy Ann doll Anabelle. The doll is processed by the spirit of a child Annabelle Higgins. The Warrens took the doll because it is being manipulated by an inhuman presence (demonic). The doll is placed inside a glass case where the presence is trapped as long as the case remains closed.
Sadly Ed Warren passed away in 2006 at the age of 79 and Lorraine now only spends time being a guest lecturer and paranormal consultant.
Lorraine Warren passed away at the age of 92 during the 2019 Easter weekend…
