Factual error: In the very beginning of the film, the priest is walking through a battlefield that contains the bodies of Roman soldiers (they are wearing distinctive Roman uniforms and armor), which dates the battle no later than 6th century AD. He is holding a rosary in his hand, but the rosary wasn't introduced into the Catholic Church until the 13th century.
The nurse & wife of the chief archaelogist, in fact, was the one who is possessed and not the boy she is taking care of, as everyone suspected.The priest sent by the Vatican to help Merrin is killed by the possessed nurse.Father Merrin realizes that she is the one possessed, and with the boy at his side, exorcises her.Father Merrin returns to the Vatican, the implication is that his faith in God and the Catholic Church is restored.
