Yossi, Abba

by Rabbi Geoffrey W. Dennis
The only Talmudic Sage credited with performing an exorcism, he drove an evil spirit from a water source with the help of townspeople. The exorcism involved shouting the phrase, "Ours triumphs!" and beating the water with iron implements (Lev. R., Tanhuma, Buber).
