The Catholic Church's top exorcist Father Gabriele Amorth.

Assume he started at 18, that means for he last 70 years, he has removed an average of 6 every day. Now, I am not an expert, but the sheer number sounds a bit fantastic, let alone anything else.

You might be assuming one demon per possessed which would be a feat. I'm assuming that in addition to collecting the Roman Emporer fee for exorcism from serfs, he is also performing inhouse work, exorcizing hundreds if not thousands of demons from parish priests and bishops.

With my assumptions, it is easy to come up with those numbers. Just like Wilt Chamberlain and the 10,000 women in 30 years. He must have had many multiple encounters.
