Goldsmid, Edmund: The Devils of Loudun, LIT v1, 15 December 2009.
The Devils of Loudun
‘The History of the Devils of Loudun, The Alleged Possession of the Ursuline Nuns, and the Trial and Execution of Urbain Grandier, Told By an Eye-Witness [Monsieur des Niau] Translated From the Original French, And Edited By Edmund Goldsmid, F.R.H.S., F.S.A. (Scot.)’
Privately Printed. Edinburgh.1887.
Not to be confused with Aldous Huxley’s book with the same title, this is an edited translation by an eye-witness. The editor has also seen fit to add a lot of information about Scottish witch-trials in the appendices and footnotes.
Several of the footnotes have their own footnotes. I have renumbered the main notes consecutively, put them at the end of the book and linked them. The notes within notes are put in square brackets within the original note.
