Summary
This film centers on the staggering true-life dementia of events in the 17th-century French city of Loudun. After Father Urbain Grandier, a priest who submitted to his own passions is accused of lewdness and sorcery by a sexually repressed nun, a mass exorcism is ordered for him and for an allegedly demon-possessed convent. This version restores all of the cut footage that was removed when the film was released including the never before seen "rape of Christ" sequence
