Exorcism (from Greek ἐξορκισμός, exorkismos – binding by oath) is the expulsion of troublesome evil spirits, ghost or demons by special rites often practiced by religious or spiritual persons. The most common and easiest method of exorcism is to call upon the Lord Jesus Christ within a church or other sacred area repeatedly while the possessed person waits through this. Depending on the belief of the exorcist they may use holy water, salt, various sacred items such as crosses. Additionally, some exorcists may make the entity swear by an oath, perform an elaborate ritual, or simply command the entity to depart in the name of the highest power.
