Exorcising lemures and searching for paranormal activity at St Paul’s Catacombs

During the Roman period, an exorcism rite was used to get rid of lemures from people’s houses. These lemures or malignant dead were believed to be restless spirits who were not provided with a proper burial or funeral rites, and so they sought revenge on the living. On Saturday, 17th November, Heritage Malta is inviting the public to attend and participate in a performance which will include a Roman exorcism rite and a search for paranormal activity at St Paul’s Catacombs in Rabat, Malta.

This event which is aimed for participants aged 16 and over, will shed some light on the Romans’ belief towards death, evil spirits and how to get rid of them. One must say that this Roman exorcism rite has nothing to do with the Catholic exorcism rite which we know today. In fact, the ancient rite has also a comic aspect.

During this event, participants will also be able to join the ghost hunters of Malta Paranormal in their search for paranormal activities in the catacombs.

Roman snacks and nibbles will be served after the tours.

Two performances will take place at 19:00 and at 20:00hrs.

TICKETS: €20 per person, Heritage Malta members at €15.

Tickets on a first come, first served basis, are available from all Heritage Malta museums and sites, & ONLINE.

Visitors are advised to wear comfortable clothing and, if possible, to bring along a torch.
