Czech church officials have confirmed that a video shot through a keyhole looking into a church as a woman said to be possessed by the devil is heard screaming as an exorcism is carried out was genuine.
The exorcism of the unknown Czech woman was apparently carried out in the Roman Catholic Church of The Assumption of the Virgin Mary in Czech town of Vranov nad Dyji and was secretly filmed through a keyhole with the video then posted on YouTube.
The author Daniel Trochta had sneaked up to the door after hearing the screaming to film the secret process through a keyhole of the church.
He then posted the almost two-minute long video which captures people standing close to the churchs altar and the very loud screaming and crying woman which includes vulgar words shouted in Czech.
The video is captioned “Evocting devil (exorcism) Vranov nad Dyji” and was originally posted on YouTube by Trochta in February but was largely ignored until the church confirmed this week that it was genuine.
The author wrote: “I filmed it through a keyhole. I suggest that you use headphones while watching it.”
Catholic Church priest Marek Dunda who has a mandate from the Bishop carried out exorcisms confirmed that the alleged exorcism was genuine but declined to comment further saying: “If something is filmed through a keyhole, there is nothing more to say about it.”
He explained he couldnt comment in more detail about what exactly happened beyond the door. He said only: “We were asking God to protect and to liberate the person. We used a Latin prayer asking for a help.”
“Of course it helps.”
The exorcist also declined to reveal the identity of the woman, saying details about her condition.
However locals are unhappy about the exorcism ritual is being carried out in the church, saying that the noises from those affected including shouting and screaming was terrifying.
Iveta Pecharova said: “I dont agree with it. It has happened more than once and the noise has been heard very far from the church.”
Marie Brozkova said: “I am a believer, I go to church and I believe that if our priest does it then it must be right.”
Mayor of the town of Vranov nad Dyji said: “I have asked about it. The priest hasnt done anything illegal.”
