SACERDOS INSTITUTE & GRIS LAUNCH THE “15th Edition Course on Exorcism and Prayer of Liberation” 25-30 October 2021

– Instructions of Accreditation –


Rome, 18th October 2021 – On October 25th will start the 15th Edition of the Course on Exorcism and Prayer of Liberation organized by the Sacerdos Institute, which forms part of the Pontifical Athenaeum Regina Apostolorum (APRA), and GRIS (Group for Socio-religious Research and Information).

This Course on exorcism, the only of its kind in the world, proposes a careful and multidisciplinary academic study of the ministry of exorcism and the prayer of liberation. The course will provide a concrete, in-depth and professional analysis in response to this current and often still little-known issue.

Several interesting new activities have been introduced in the 2021 Edition:

  • A presentation of the important research on exorcism carried out by Sacerdos in collaboration with GRIS and the University of Bologna;
  • Roundtable discussions among exorcists of different Christian denominations;
  • The presence, for the first time, of a French priest who is an expert in healing prayer.

Participation in the course includes students from other Christian denominations.

The course will be in Italian with simultaneous translation in English and Spanish.

This year, only accredited Press will be able to receive the Research Abstract and participate in various parts of the Course.

Monday 25th October

– 9-11 am: Attendance in the Plenary session;
