En 1634, Urbain Grandier, jésuite et curé de la paroisse Saint-Pierre-du-Marché à Loudun est codamné pour sorcellerie. Il est supplicié et brûlé vif. On l'accuse d'avoir déchaîné par magie les démons qui se sont emparés du corps et de l'âme des possédées, une dizaine de religieuses du couvent des Ursulines. La police et la justice royale, venues l'arrêter sur ordre de Richelieu, ont saisi tous ses livres et papiers, dont le manuscrit du Traité du Célibat des Prêtres. Brûlé avec son auteur, ce livre, dont une copie fut sauvé par miracle, est resté inédit jusqu'en 1866. Introuvable depuis, il méritait d'être republié à l'heure d'autres condamnations sans appel par le splus hautes intances de l'Église. Trois cent cinquante ans après le bûcher, la logique implacable, l'argumentation bruillante et caustique de ce pamphlet sont d'une confondante actualité
