A correspondence of the inquisitor of Vercelli, Cipriano Uberti O.P., with St. Charles Borromeo relates the story of a calvinist woman from Geneva, most likely daughter of Italian refugees, supposed to be possessed by demons: in May 1578 she underwent a peculiar rite of exorcism, performed in Chambe´ry by the dean of the Sainte-Chapelle du Saint-Suaire (who was also bishop of St-Jean-de-Maurienne) and the episcopal vicar of Grenoble. The Holy Shroud itself was used for the rite, which took place only a few months before the move of the relic to Turin. Later, the woman went to Piedmont, converted to Catholicism and was taken under protection by Uberti, who eventually asked St. Charles to hide her in Milan. A critical edition of the correspondence, of which five letters from December 1578 to January 1579 are preserved in Milan (Biblioteca Ambrosiana, F 53 A inf., F 55 inf., F 67 inf., F 99 if., P 17 inf.), is provided in the Appendix.
