Jacula is an Italian progressive rock band founded in 1972 in Milan as an experiment by Antonio Bartoccetti, Doris Norton (also known as Fiamma Dello Spirito), organist Charles Tiring and medium Franz Parthenzy.
Because the band was experimental, and had been labeled by founder Antonio Bartoccetti as a youth mistake, 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, 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.
