Fascinating work on the trial of Dominican Froilan de Llanos, who was the official confessor of Charles II of Spain. Fray Froylan Diaz de Llanos was convinced that the king's poor health was a result of a spell cast on him. In 1698-1699, under the Head Inquisitor, Juan Tomas de Rocaberti's supervision, he performed a series of exorcisms over the king, after which he stated that Charles II was indeed under the influence of evil forces, for which various persons from the royal court were responsible, among others Queen Maria Anna of Neuburg. When the queen found out about the accusations against her, Froylan Diaz de Llanos was dismissed from the post of royal confessor and transferred to the diocese of the city of Avila and subsequently arrested by the Tribunal of the Inquisition on charges of heresy. Some age wear on binding with rubbing on spine and along edges. Minor and sporadic foxing throughout. Binding in overall good- to good, interior in very good condition.
