Born in Walschbronn on the Moselle, Father Wurtz (1765-1826) was Vicar of Saint-Nizier in Lyon. He was a fierce anti-revolutionary and composed several anti-Masonic pamphlets along the lines of those also published by Father Barruel. In 1817, he was suspended "a divinis" by the vicars of Lyon, for having explained in "The Precursors of the Anti-Christ" that Napoleon was the "Apollyon" (the Exterminating Angel)

Very rare and curious treatise against the "demonolaters" (Satan worshippers) and against Magic, Magnetism and other diabolical manifestations of which he blames the "Philosophers"
