Nicholas Remy (aka Rémy and Remigius) (1534 - 1600) was a French Catholic priest. In 1570 he was named to serve the Inquisition's tribunals in Alsace, France. His book Demonolatria Libri Tres (Demonolatry, Book III), published in Lyon in 1595, contributed to give him fame as a cruel and fanatic witch hunter, comparable to Jean Bodin and De Lancre.

According to Remy, the Devil could appear before people in the shape of a black man or animal, and liked Black Masses. Demons could also have sexual relationships with women and, in case they did not agree, rape them.

Remy was responsible for the death of more than nine hundred persons in witch trials between 1581 and 1591, and this was his highest pride, as he told it.

Saint Remigius - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (585 words)
Saint Remigius, Apostle of the Franks, bishop of Reims, (ca 437– January 13, 533) effected the conversion to Christianity of Clovis, King of the Franks, at Christmas, 496, one of the turning points in the success of Trinitarian Christianity and a climacteric moment in European history.
Remigius was born, traditionally at Cerny, near Laon, into the highest levels of Gallo-Roman society, said to have been son of Emilius, count of Laon (who is not otherwise attested) and of Celina, daughter of the bishop of Soissons, which Clovis had conquered in 486.
Remigius' brother Principius was bishop of Soissons and also corresponded with Sidonius Apollinaris (Book IX.viii), whose letters give a sense of the highly cultivated courtly literary Gallo-Roman style all three men shared.
