Jacula is an Italian progressive rock band founded in 1972[2] in Milan as an experiment by Antonio Bartoccetti, Doris Norton (also known as Fiamma Dello Spirito), organist Charles Tiring and medium Franz Parthenzy.[3]

Because the band was experimental, and had been labeled by founder Antonio Bartoccetti as a youth mistake[citation needed], Jacula's discography is relatively small.

The group completed three albums, Tardo Pede In Magiam Versus which features Doris Norton's vocals, with a sound influenced by bands of the Italian underground scene such as Le Orme[citation needed], In Cauda Semper Stat Venenum which has a superposition of an organ, piano and other sound effects, and Per Viam, featuring a more modern sound. In the 1970s, Jacula changed its name to Antonius Rex, maintaining the same lineup before returning to that name in 2011.
