Traité du célibat des prêtres by Urbain Grandier( Book )

14 editions published between 1856 and 1995 in French and Undetermined and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En 1634, Urbain Grandier, jésuite et curé de la paroisse Saint-Pierre-du-Marché à Loudun est codamné pour sorcellerie. Il est supplicié et brûlé vif. On l'accuse d'avoir déchaîné par magie les démons qui se sont emparés du corps et de l'âme des possédées, une dizaine de religieuses du couvent des Ursulines. La police et la justice royale, venues l'arrêter sur ordre de Richelieu, ont saisi tous ses livres et papiers, dont le manuscrit du Traité du Célibat des Prêtres. Brûlé avec son auteur, ce livre, dont une copie fut sauvé par miracle, est resté inédit jusqu'en 1866. Introuvable depuis, il méritait d'être republié à l'heure d'autres condamnations sans appel par le splus hautes intances de l'Église. Trois cent cinquante ans après le bûcher, la logique implacable, l'argumentation bruillante et caustique de ce pamphlet sont d'une confondante actualité

"The Devils of Loudun is a 1952 non-fiction novel by Aldous Huxley. It is a historical narrative of supposed demonic possession, religious fanaticism, sexual repression, and mass hysteria which occurred in 17th century France surrounding unexplained events that took place in the small town of Loudun; particularly on Roman Catholic priest Urbain Grandier and an entire convent of Ursuline nuns, who allegedly became possessed by demons after Grandier made a pact with Satan. The events led to several public exorcisms as well as executions by burning."--Wikipedia, March 2012
