EUSAPIA PALLADINO AND HER PHENOMENA. (Used)
by Carrington, Hereward.
Book ID: 1345, 1345
1345 Carrington, Hereward. EUSAPIA PALLADINO AND HER PHENOMENA. NY: Dodge, 1909, 353pp, frontis, other illustrations. Crabtree 1625. Palladino remains one of the most debated mediums. She was responsible for 'converting' die-hard skeptics and astounding researchers by producing long lost watches, speaking in ancient languages, hurling furniture through the air, etc. Carrington's book contains expositions of many of the most famous sittings, done all over Europe in front of leading researchers, skeptics and believers. Carrington was an amateur magician who along with leading scientists and professional magicians examined Palladino repeatedly while she produced phenomena. The results are debated to this day. Palladino, a poor uneducated Italian woman, was caught, like almost all the great mediums, faking phenomena. She once said "How can I always produce at will? These men, they think of nothing but trickery, always tricks, tricks, tricks, it is all they have in their minds. I make what is in their minds.." See the very long entry in Melton's Encyclopedia of Occultism and Parapsychology, and there is a lengthy bibliographical appendix to Dingwall's chapter on her in his Very Peculiar People.
Gnosis 19: The Trickster. A Journal of the Western Inner Traditions
"As long as we lie to ourselves, the Trickster will be with us.
He'll show up just when we least want him, to embarrass us on a
first date, to prove us fools in front of the learned company
we're trying to impress, to make us miss a power breakfast with
that all-important business contact."
- Richard Smoley, from the introduction

Emergent from the spiritual crossroads of traditional Vodou and English w...
