Berthold Pürstinger was a 15th-century German theological writer and Bishop of Chiemsee. After serving in that See, Pürstinger published a number of writings that focused on religious doctrine and Catholic teaching. He wrote a treatise on the Catholic mass and another on the practice of Communion; however, his most important and impactful work was ‘Onus Ecclesiae’ or ‘Burden of the Church’.

 

‘Onus Ecclesiae’ is a Catholic exposition on the abuses that the 15th and 16th-century church endured, focusing on the rise and ever-common presence of demons & sorcery in the physical world! While the title of the work is not indicative of the contents, the engraved title page should be – a view of Satan wreaking havoc on a church! Apocalyptic literature had been popular within the church since the 3rd century, and Pürstinger’s ‘Onus’ is a substantial defense against the evil, warnings against the end of the world.
