Printer’s woodcut devices on title and at end. 2 volumes in 12mo. Half vellum. Author's augmented edition of this classic of occult literature. Girolamo Menghi (1529-1609),a Franciscan monk from Viadana, was the leading exorcist of the Italian Renaissance. The Compendio,his best known work, is a summary of his experiences as official exorcist of the Bologna diocese over a period of thirty years, where he treats the nature of demons and witches and describes successfully tested methods of containing evil. First published in 1580, a supplement was added in 1601, offered here as a second volume. The dedication is to Cardinal Giulio Feltri della Rovere (1532-78), sponsor of sacred music and protector of the Franciscan Order. Menghi's work precedes the codification of exorcism rites in Rituale Romanum (1614) during the pontificate of Pope Paul V. It was placed on the Index in 1709.
