Ancient diviners whose special occupation was called ariolatio because they accomplished their divination by means of altars. They consulted demons on their altars, stated Dangis; they observed whether the altar trembled or performed any marvel and predicted what the Devil inspired them with. François de la Tour Blanche maintained that these people ought to have been put to death as idolators. He based his opinion on Deuteronomy 18 and Revelation 21, which assert that idolators and liars shall be cast into the lake of fire and sulphur, which will be their second death.
