9.1 FATHER LOUIS GAUFRIDI
Born in the latter half of the
sixteenth century, Gaufridi
was part of the diocese of Marsailles.
His position as a priest was a sham though,
designed to hide the fact that he was a sorcerer.
Though he would later be referred to as "The
Prince of The Sorcerers", he was an accomplished
though not renowned practitioner.
It is believed he possessed one of the seven
books of Honorius. Most likely he passed this onto to one of his pupils before
When discovered by the church, he
was subjected to interrogation and torture.
Most of his ramblings were incoherent and
nonsensical, but he did reveal some elements of
ceremonial magic to his persecutors.
In 1611 he was executed.
Had he been allowed to live, no doubt sorcerers
would have hunted him down for the secrets (how ever
minor they were) he had revealed.
The Inquisitors made an attempt to
locate Gaufridi's pupils, but none were ever captured.
