A priest in the Czech Republic confirmed the authenticity of a video showing an exorcism filmed through a church door keyhole.
The exorcism took place sometime in February 2014 at the Roman Catholic Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary in Vranov nad Dyji, a small town in the southern part of the Czech Republic just north of the Austrian border.
Local resident Daniel Trochta says he heard the screams of a woman coming from inside the church. The door into the church had an old-fashioned keyhole big enough for Trochta to see through and, more importantly, large enough for his cell phone camera to capture the activities inside along with the sounds of woman crying and swearing and the priest reciting the exorcism rituals in Latin to cast out the demon.

Local priest Father Marek Dunda finally confirmed that the video was real and implied that he was the exorcist or at least present during the ceremony.
We were asking God to protect and to liberate the person. We used a Latin prayer asking for a help. Of course it helps,
Dunda said this week.
The priest declined to give further details of the incident.
If something is filmed through a keyhole, there is nothing more to say about it,
The town’s mayor, Lubomir Vedra, said he has spoken with church officials and determined nothing illegal took place.
