Anneliese Michel.

Anneliese Michel.

Anneliese Michel (21 September 1952 – 1 July 1976) was a German Catholic woman who underwent an exorcism and died in the same year because of stopping medical and psychiatric intervention; the investigation and court case which followed attracted public attention, and the film The Exorcism of Emily Rose is loosely based on her. When Michel was sixteen, she had her first epileptic attack and was diagnosed with temporal lobe epilepsy. She was soon in depression and was treated at a psychiatric hospital.
