A ‘possessed’ woman underwent a nine-hour exorcism after she attacked an Italian priest during confession and started speaking in different voices and languages.
The 28-year-old woman was accompanied by her family members to the Church of Saint Mary of Mount Berico in Vicenza, northern Italy, at around 11am on Sunday for confession.
But witnesses said the unnamed woman began to scream and swear inside the basilica, and spoke in different voices and languages, including Latin, Corriere del Veneto reported.
The exorcism did not finish until 8.30pm when the woman collapsed and was taken home by her parents and younger brother, local media reported.
