This book contains prayers for use by priests without faculties for the sake of helping to liberate those under diabolic influence, including several different forms of exorcisms in Latin as well as prayers in English. It is composed of prayers from the Ritual as well as the Mechlen Pastoral, a 17th century book with the ecclesiastical approbation of the Bishops of Antwerp at that time, as well as other sources. All have been faithfully transcribed from the 17th century printing into modern type.
Sensus Traditionis Press is pleased to present a reprint of one of the more famous manuals of exorcism used in the 17th and 18th century. This manual, being a collection from the Rituale Romanum, and several other manuals of exorcism in use at the time, was approved by the Bishop of Antwerp in 1635 and by the royal authority of the Hapsburg Regents ruling the Netherlands for the Spanish.
This has been completely reformatted and transcribed from the 17th century original by Ryan Grant, making it more easily readable without an ‘s’ that looks like an ‘f’, printer’s shorthand and other styles that people are not trained to read today.
