Every year for Carnival season, residents of the Swiss Alpine town of Einsiedeln get out their pitchforks and whips to banish evil spirits. Einsiedeln is also the location of one of Switzerlands largest Catholic monasteries. While officially the origins of the custom remain unknown, it is worthwhile to consider that historically much of the land in this area was owned by the monastery, and the population consisted of poor tenant farmers.
