The History of Spiritualism: Volumes I and II
Originally 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.
The book 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
This book is a must
for anyone at all interested in Spiritualism, regardless of one's approach
to that subject.
