Il Duca di Cesena in Electric Velocipede

Il Duca di Cesena has been published in Electric Velocipede No. 10

“I tell you now, Father Gregory, written in my own hand, that this man, Il Duca Malatesta, was uninhabited by the adversaries of God and of Christ. There was no visible derangement, no foaming at the mouth, no erratic personality or cacophony of voices, no unintelligible or ancient languages emitted, no vomiting or self-inflictions. There was no evidence of which to speak by which this man could be adjudged as being under the charge of Supreme Evil. And, yet, the good cardinals were convinced of it. And why? Because of the extent of his crime.”
