Storyline

SG-1 lands on a planet where a culturally 'medieval Catholic' community lives in fear of a demon of Unas's species, which regularly collects human sacrifices to Satan, in fact hosts for system lord Sokar's army. When Simon implores SG-1 to spare his beloved Mary and take him instead, they even nurse her chicken pox. Simon hopes they are sent by God to deliver them from the satanic burden, but the canon who rules the village as 'spiritual' leader faithful to Sokar fears his authority challenged, which rests on his right to select the 'damned soul' to be sacrificed, declares Teal'c a demon and incarcerates all SG-1. Witch-trial-type ordeals see the Jaffa 'proven' a demon and executed by drowning, Daniel refuses the canon's to leave immediately. When Teal'c's symbiont allows a resurrection even Sam hadn't expected, they are all designated possessed and sacrificed, yet Mary is also. Simon follows the Unas with a staff weapon to liberate them, but he's not alone... Written by KGF Vissers [minor edit by kbeartx]

Trivia

Daniel states that trepanning was a common medieval practice and his reaction implies that it means almost certain death. Drilling holes in someone's skull to let the bad out was very common for a very long time in most cultures. Up to 10% of all stone age skulls discovered have evidence of trepanning and most of those show bone restructuring at the edges of the hole, meaning the patient lived long enough for the surgical wound to heal. Think about that; in an age when the most advanced tool is a sharp rock, not only was trepanning common but it was commonly survived. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Daniel Jackson: It was a procedure often done in the Middle Ages. They... well, they-they'd drill a hole in the person's head. By drilling a hole the evil spirits are released, thus saving the person from eternal damnation.
Jack O'Neill: Thus *saving* the person?
Dr. Daniel Jackson: Well, they didn't call them the Dark Ages because it was dark.
