Anneliese Michel  Born: 21 September 1952 Died: 1 July 1976

Anneliese Michel is German woman who has undergone Catholic exorcism rites in 1975 and died the next year, due to lack of medical care. Her death was investigated and it was determined that she was malnourished and dehydrated. Due to the shocking revelation, her parents and the priests responsible for the rites were charged with negligent homicide.

Her death and the controversy surrounding it attracted media and public attention due to the Catholic Church’s unusual decision to employ the 400-year-old ritual of exorcism, something that was rarely utilized since the 18th Century.

Those same reports also describe episodes in which Michel would make demonic faces, rip her clothes, eat coal, and lick up her own urine. After her family exhausted their patience with traditional medicine, they called in a priest to perform an exorcism.

When she was only sixteen, Anneliese Michel began suffering regular convulsions and  epileptic seizures. She was later diagnosed with strong psychosis and temporal lobe epilepsy. According to reports, she was too depressed and there were even times that she would even hallucinate demonic faces throughout the day and hear voices that told her she was “damned.” Her condition led to the decision of treating her at a psychiatric hospital. Her condition worsened despite numerous medications and treatment. She became suicidal, this made her parents believe that she was indeed possessed by demons and they started to look for help from a Catholic priest to perform an exorcism.
