Exorcisms Spike Worldwide: Unveiling the Unholy Alliance Between Global Crises and Spiritual Anxieties

The Catholic Church is grappling with a dramatic increase in exorcisms globally, particularly in the United STates and Latin America, since the introduction of COVID-19 vaccines in 2021. This trend has sparked alarm and has been noted by Andrew Chesnut, a renowned expert in Catholic Studies at Virginia Commonwealth University.

“Exploring the Rise of Exorcism Across the Globe”

Chesnut’s declaration of a global exorcism boom, extending beyond national boundaries, underscores the magnitude of this unprecedented phenomenon. The Catholic Church, in response to this surge, has found itself compelled to intensify the training of priests for exorcism practices.

Exploring the Root Causes
The exponential rise in exorcisms isn’t merely a localized trend; it’s part of a broader societal shift. Professor Deepak Sarma from Case Western Reserve University emphasizes the United States’ historical inclination towards spiritualism, where the freedom to select and adopt various religious doctrines, practices, and rituals has flourished.

Evolution of Spiritual Individuality

In today’s world, people are moving away from organized religion and instead, are exploring their own unique spiritual paths. This shift allows individuals to create their own personalized spiritual journeys, free from the constraints of traditional religious institutions.

Decoding the Timing Behind the Surge

While the U.S. has always possessed the potential for exorcism practices, the recent boom raises questions about its sudden acceleration. Chesnut conjectures that this spike may stem from global anxieties triggered by current world events. The pandemic, coupled with geopolitical tensions like those between Russia and Ukraine and conflicts in Israel and Palestine, fuels a perception of impending apocalyptic signs among religious adherents.


In an era overshadowed by profound global challenges, the belief in demonic possession and the pursuit of exorcism present a seemingly rational avenue for alleviating anxieties and uncertainties stemming from these events.

This surge in exorcisms, therefore, emerges not merely as a religious phenomenon but as a reflection of societal apprehensions seeking solace and reassurance amid tumultuous times.
