In this week’s cover story, Kate Kingsbury and Andrew Chesnut recall a conversation with a man in the Deep South who blamed his car troubles on the Devil. The vehicle wouldn’t work again, he told them, unless it was exorcised by a Catholic priest. It’s not just in the US that demand for exorcism is growing: it’s a worldwide phenomenon that, as Will Gore notes, is capturing the attention of documentary filmmakers. Elsewhere in this edition, Michael White recalls the nuns who blazed a new path for choral music, Michael Duggan laments the decline of stained glass and Harry Mount explains why he’s begun to wear a hi-vis yellow vest. I hope you enjoy the issue.
