Think about the different theories that have been presented so far. Do you feel that one theory is more convincing than the others? Do you believe there might be more than one cause involved?

Hello. You have not provided the theories to which the question refers, which may leave the opinion article a little inaccurate, but I hope it helps you.
The witch accusations that happened in the past are an intriguing historical fact that leads to the creation of several studies on the elements and theories that make up these accusations, ranging from supernatural elements to social elements such as intolerance and sexism.
Although we know that theories based on spiritual and religious issues are more discredited in today's society, than theories of a social nature, we cannot consider them less convincing, since these accusations had a religious nature and were built from beliefs and the views of the people of the time, who within the historical context, knew little about machismo, sexism, but shaped society from spiritualism. Theories of a social nature have the same value as those of a supernatural nature, our current academic bases allow us to analyze these situations from a social point of view, seeing the imbalance in relation to men and women that these evidences presented.
Therefore, we can conclude that analyzing theories does not refer only to the modern view we have of a historical fact, but to the entire historical context in which these theories were created and the historical context of the moment they refer to.
