Basilica of St. Eustorgio – The exorcist

0
Under the Basilica of St. Eustorgio, there are the ruins of a Roman necropolis. Worth to be mentioned the grave of Vittorino, an exorcist contemporary of St. Ambrose. His job was to cast out the devil through special prayers. This practice was widespread during the late Roman age, especially during baptism, and the exorcist could also decide who was virtuous enough to receive the holy communion.
