Course on the Ministry of Exorcism and Deliverance

When it was initiated in 2004, the course was the first of its kind to propose a formation based on careful scientific and interdisciplinary research for those who practice the ministry of exorcism and deliverance.

Organized by the Sacerdos Institute in cooperation with the Gruppo di Ricerca Socio-religiosa e Informazioni (GRIS, Bologna), the course is held at the Pontifical Athenaeum Regina Apostolorum in Rome. A wide range of aspects pertaining to the ministry of exorcism and deliverance are studied systematically, including theological, liturgical, canonical, pastoral, spiritual, psychological, psychiatric, neurological, pharmacological, forensic, and legal aspects.
