Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The exorcism of Roland Doe refers to events surrounding the alleged possessed status and exorcism of an anonymous American boy, which occurred in the late 1940s: Roland Doe (also known as Robbie Mannheim; born circa 1936) is the pseudonym assigned to the exorcized boy, by the Catholic Church per standard procedure. Later the pseudonym was changed by author Thomas B. Allen to "Robbie Mannheim."The alleged events which were reported in the media of the time and the subsequent claims surrounding those events went on to inspire the 1971 novel The Exorcist by William Peter Blatty and the 1973 film of the same name, as well as Thomas B. Allen's 1993 nonfiction account Possessed (in which Allen re-assigned "Roland Doe" with the pseudonym "Robbie Mannheim"), a second edition of it in 1999, and the 2000 film by the same name, based on Allen's book.show more
