It shocked those who saw him and therefore, he was reported to the Holy Office and convicted to serve six years of his life in prison because “only Satan can bestow men with the ability to expel smoke from the mouth.” By the time he was released, the smoking habit had spread out in most parts of Europe, especially among the royalty and clergy.
