The history of exorcism is filled with stories of terror and fear that dominate human beings because of its connection with the saying that these spirits are capable of capturing them, and these stories are not without traumas and exciting events; Reader's Digestive has reviewed a number of these stories:
It was noticed in 1778 that English tailor George Lockins behaved strangely, making strange and inhumane voices, ordering seven priests - during a ceremony at the Temple Church in Bristol - the demons who apparently took possession of Lockins' spirit to leave for good.
This story is said to be one of the few exorcism stories that ended in happiness.
German villagers in 1842 noticed that strange events were taking place in the house of a 28-year-old woman named Gottlieben Dittus, who claimed that her house was haunted, and soon began to faint and became involved in what some described as a coma.
When a priest tried to exorcise these evil spirits, things evolved and Detos became so violent that they restrained him.In two years, the priest applied various ritual exorcisms, while Detos continued to vomit glass, nails and blood before eventually declaring that she had healed. The demons disappeared.
