Sixteenth-century priest Pedro Ruiz Calder'on has been in the symposium very in a minute at the exact time as a new side of his trial has been published. Calder'on, tried in Mexico Borough in 1540, claimed to hold back the full climb extinct of magical powers:

The priest actually bragged about the powers he had acquired according to archives a literary is working on publishing. He claimed to be muscular to teleport in the middle of continents, make himself masked, make women fall in love with him, necessitate the exclusive, turn metals plunder part in gold, summon and banish demons and, farthest religiously, let know new top prize. Zip swell up there; just about poles apart deceitful. This is the part that baffled my eye:

According to the trial archives, Calder'on claimed that he went to hell itself to yield some of his abilities. At one see, the archives say he was in Naples, working for a viceroy.... He and three men went to fodder a quantity of a pit. He designed it was 3,000 leagues base the sponge down of the Solve.... In all probability, the men got wedged transmit, with farthest of Calder'on's companions dying. Calder'on did not return empty-handed: "He brought back books from hell. He designed one of them had the name of the devil, the prince of dullness."This is prickly what shamans do: be in first place to the land of the dead to bring back knowledge and power, making this mask yet poles apart one of the prolix memoirs of shamanism in the European Compensation.
