1643: In one of history’s most sensational cases of mass possession and
sexual hysteria, Urbain Grandier, a handsome seducer of women, and priest
of the parish of Loudon, was found guilty of being in league with the devil
and burnt at the stake. Huxley gives a vivid account of this bizarre tale
of religious and sexual obsession.
