Transcript of Synecdoche in The Crucible

The judgement in which those convicted of witchery receive is nothing compared or the judgement after the hangings, whether they travel to heaven or hell.

Why Witch craft
With the sighting of Abigail and her friends dancing in the woods, a forbidden action in earlier times, the towns people search for someone to blame for her actions other than the obvious. Abigail blames the devil for her actions and random innocent towns folk are accused to cover up Abigail's guilty conscience.

“Let you fear nothing! Another judgement awaits us all!”

Why this sentence?
It alludes to the new testament of the bible where the Rapture, or "Judgement Day", saying that you should not worry about the problem at hand, but the bigger picture of your life as a whole.
