The survey was conducted by research company InFact on behalf of VG. The results also show that 10% of the respondents are sure they know somebody who is possessed.
– It surprized me that so many people believe in devil. 1 out of 10 believes he knows someone who is possessed by devil. I doubt that the figure might be so high. At the same time I can’t disapprove it, comments Oslo’s Catholic bishop, Bernt Eidsvig to NTB.
If a person is possessed, the usual treatment is the practice of exorcism – driving out the demon that has taken up residence in this person. The ritual is ancient, but is still in action in the world’s largest Christian church – the Catholic. The bishop confirms that the acts of exorcisms have been performed in Norway.
