Abstract

This article explores how secular and Canon Law on exorcism have evolved in tandem in England, each subject to the influence of the other, as well as wider cultural changes. It considers how the historical cautious and strictly regulated approach of the Church of England still influences the legal contemporary framework, and explores how the present day judicial approach in this jurisdiction contrasts with other contexts in the Common Law world.
