A Soul Possessed: The True Story of the Exorcism of Anneliese Michel
In 1976 Anneliese believed she had been possessed by demonic spirits. Tragically dying after enduring 67 rites of exorcism, today she is considered to be an unofficial saint and is worshipped by people around the world. Here is her extraordinary story.
Anneliese Michel (September 21, 1952 – July 1, 1976) was a German Catholic girl who was “possessed by demons” and subsequently underwent an exorcism. Following the last exorcism and after warning her mother that she could take no more, Anneliese died in her sleep.
