Haunted by memories of World War II atrocities, and suffering from a crisis of faith, Father Lankester Merrin has taken a break from the Catholic Church to pursue his interest in archaeology. While in Cairo, a collector of antiquities approaches him and seeks his help in attaining an artifact that he claims is in an excavation being led by the British. At the site of the dig in Kenya, a Byzantine Christian Cathedral has been uncovered in remarkably perfect condition. Rumors of strange happenings are terrifying the locals and excavators flee, with the lead archaeologist having been committed after a psychological breakdown. As signs of demonic activity continue, Merrin must face the question of whether he believes or not, and ultimately face the realities of a demonic presence.
