Thessaloniki Prosecutor Wants Answers About Alleged Exorcism

THESSALONIKI – Reports that a religious sect in Greece’s second-largest city, Thessaloniki, is carrying out exorcisms has led a prosecutor to order a police investigation into what’s going on at its meetings in public spots.

That probe will try to determine whether whether members of the so-called “Church of Nations” may have violated laws related to proselytization, use of public spaces and disturbance of the peace, said Kathimerini.

Reports said that member of the group, which has a house of worship on the edges of the city, have done at least three ceremonies they described as exorcisms at the main Aristotelous Square and near its Ancient Agora.

Around 10 people are reported to have participated and been “cleansed of evil spirits” in each of these sessions, it was said, with video footage of the ceremonies, parts conducted in English, is flowing on social media sites.

It wasn’t clear whether the group if a branch of any recognized international religious movement, has formal recognition as a church or is just a bunch of people carrying out so-called cleaning sessions, the methods not being explained.
