The scourge of demons and Fust daemon - R.P.F. Jerome eng. Exorcisticae of art - F. Zachary sheriff. Fight Satan - Peter Anthony stamp.At the beginning of the modern European age, there was a political instability along with a religious and moral crisis, and it was blamed on the influence of the devil.
Due to this belief flourished in the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries the Art of Exorcism, many demonologists or tratistas were dedicated to examine the names, physical appearance, forms and activities of demons, compiling manuals or treatises on exorcisms that taught to discover satanic features in society, signs that could respond to manifestations: physiological, sensory and paranormal.
In some writings, the limits between the exorcist doctrine, the magico-popular techniques and the occultists of medicine are very uncertain, because in their eagerness to teach therapeutic and antidemonic means they resorted to the most diverse and strange sources for what theologians and judges they rivaled the instruction they provided.Due to distrust of the different techniques for exorcisms, censorship and prohibition arose in 1614, due to the publication of the Roman Ritual,a work that contained precise instructions that contrasted with the exorcist practice reported by Manghi and other exorcists.
Evidence of this is that the works Flagellum Daemonum and Fustis Daemonum were heavily censored in 1704.
Girolamo Manghi 1529 - 1609, Italian priest of the Order of the Franciscans, is perhaps the most recognized exorcist of all time.
He traveled through Italy carrying out countless exorcisms and wrote numerous treatises on this subject.His second work Flagellum Daemonum, is a detailed treatise of exorcisms, which contains different rituals and prayers to combat the various types of demons and evil spirits.
Manghi relied on various treatises on occult sciences and demonic possessions and especially on the important work of exorcisms, the Malleus Maleficarum.The work was a great success,to such an extent that exorcists accused of illicit practices before the ecclesiastical courts defended themselves under the authority of Manghi and his treaty.Fuga Satanae, by the Italian father Petro Antonio Stampa, was one of the most important and popular manuals of exorcisms of his time.However, the work of Stampa gained notoriety by the list of the different names and titles of the Devil, as well as his assistants and other demons.
It also includes a list of the Holy Scriptures that can be used to fight each one of them.
Stampa was considered one of the greatest authorities in the fight against demonic forces.
Zaccaria Visconti, professional exorcist of the Barnabite Congregation of St. Ambrose of Milan, completed the work Complementum Artis Exorcisticae ...,provides the theological framework and practice for exorcism.
