Devil’s Scourge : Exorcism During the Italian Renaissance


SKU: 9781578632657 Categories: , Tags: ,


The famous exorcist Menghi (1529-1609) first published the ancient texts used for the practice in 1576. Paxia, a teacher of Italian and history near Venice, has selected seven of them that he thinks can contribute to a deeper understanding of the horrendous, mysterious world of demonic realities. He also discusses demonology from antiquity to the Renaissance, Menghi’s vision of evil, and the practice of exorcism. Janet Sethre translated either from the original Latin or perhaps from Paxia’s Italian for an uncited edition. There is no index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
