Description

An encyclopedic survey of esoteric traditions, supernatural phenomena, and spiritualist thinkers from ancient mythmakers to present-day gurus.

The concept of the supernatural applies to a variety of occurrences that are beyond the grasp of typical human consciousness. Supernaturalism encompasses the animate and the inanimate; the physical and the metaphysical; Heaven, Hell and all that is between. This reference guide offers an in-depth survey of these phenomena, as well as the terminology and personalities connected to various spiritualist traditions that have sought to understand them.

Dictionary of Spiritualism ranges across the world, and from antiquity to the twentieth century, touching on a multiplicity of legends, mythologies, beliefs, and supernatural events that are far beyond mortal comprehension.
