History of Spiritualism: Volumes I and II
Arthur Conan Doyle
published in 1926, Doyle's History of Spiritualism is, bar none,
the finest book depicting the events which lead up to the birth of
the Modern Spiritualist movement and the subsequent aftermath of
March 31, 1848. Not only is the book historically correct, Arthur
Conan Doyle (creator of Sherlock Holmes) is fair, open-minded
and, where needed, critical of certain aspects of the Spiritualist
movement and its workers.
begins with discussions on the three forerunners of the
Spiritualist movement: Emanuel Swedenborg, the Shakers and
Andrew Jackson Davis. It then follows what happened with the Fox
family in March, 1848, and proceeds with detailed analysis of the various mediums,
along with the implications behind the phenomena and the
communications coming through these mediums during that
period, right up to World War I.
This is a
book well worth reading if you are interested in religious and
spiritual history; if you are studying mediumship; or if you want
to learn about the amazing work of Spirit which took place through
the real pioneers who devoted their lives and even their dignity
for the cause of Spirit. Nothing -- and we mean nothing -- seen
today in mediumship comes anywhere close to what was witnessed
during those amazing days. This, in itself, will inspire you!
is a must for anyone at all interested in Spiritualism,
regardless of one's approach to that subject.
