Bell, book and candle as exorcism class made compulsory

THE University College of Barbaran and Collan, has made it compulsory for all its 196 students to attend a seminar, which is to cover “fields related to the devil, exorcisms, possessions and hell.”

Posters advertising the event, scheduled for Thursday May 5 and entitled ‘Evil’, are plastered all over the school, and make it clear that attendance is obligatory without a valid excuse, although no complaints have apparently been received as yet.

The conference will be led by Father Jose Antonio Fortea Cucurull, priest of the diocese of Alacala de Henares, and is supported by funds from the Ministry of Defence.

In a recent interview with TV station Antena 3, Cucurull said: “The devil does not have horns or a colour, it is an incorporeal entity that all religions agree roams the world. It exists.”

He has previously written a monograph on demonism which included a chapter on exorcism and outsold the Da Vinci Code in Paraguay, and has asserted that “knowledge of evil leads to good.”

The talk is part of a series taking place at the school, which is attached to the publicly-funded Complutense University of Madrid, in order to “promote intellectual, moral and physical development” in its students.
