Additional Info

In 17th century France, a worldly priest has a special attraction for the ladies especially for a psychotic prioress whom he spurns. She avenges herself by feigning diabolical possession by his incubus. The hysteria becomes widespread. Meantime, he is guilty of outrages against several prominent women and the cry against him grows. The antagonism of Richlieu ends the clamor of the convent, forces him to trial, torture and eventual death at the stake.
