Description

The Devils of Loudun is an account of the possession of the nuns of Loudun. In 1634 the Ursuline nuns of Loudon were allegedly possessed by demons. This is one of the largest cases of mass possession in history. Father Urbain Grandier, a local priest, was interrogated under torture, convicted of being responsible for the possessions (as well as sorcery), and subsequently burned at the stake. This is a 19th century translation of the primary account of the episode, originally written in French by Des Niau in 1634.

This book has 56 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1887.

Production notes: This ebook of The Devils of Loudun was published by Global Grey in 2018.
