Aldous Huxleys acclaimed and gripping account of one of the strangest occurrences in historyIn 1643 an entire convent in the small French village of Loudun was apparently possessed by the devil. After a sensational and celebrated trial, the convents charismatic priest Urban Grandier-accused of spiritually and sexually seducing the nuns in his charge-was convicted of being in league with Satan. Then he was burned at the stake for witchcraft.In this classic work by the legendary Aldous Huxley-a remarkable true story of religious and sexual obsession considered by many to be his nonfiction masterpiece-a compelling historical event is clarified and brought to vivid life.
