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. (See also Divination)
