Father Amorth, who had served as official exorcist for the Diocese of Rome (he was often inaccurately described as the Vatican's exorcist), drew international attention with his outspoken warnings about the rising danger of diabolical influence in modern society. He had often complained that Catholic bishops are negligent in responding to those dangers, and insisted that demonic influence is more prevalent than commonly understood.

Father Amorth, who reported that he had been involved in thousands of exorcisms, told about some of his experiences in his books, such as An Exorcist Tells his Story.
