Great work by Allan Kardec on experimental spiritism, Le livre des médiums ou Guide des médiums et des évocateurs is one of the five basic books on spiritism. It is the result of the work of synthesis of Allan Kardec, who edited and published the first time in Paris in January 1861. It contains an introduction to the spiritual phenomena and a full presentation of methods of communication identified in the 19th century.
Allan Kardec (Lyon, 1804 - Paris, 1869) is the pen name of the educator and writer Hippolyte Léon Denizard Rivail, considered the systematiser of the doctrine called spiritism. The success of The Spirits' Book led to the founding of the Revue Spirite and the formal creation in 1858 of the Parisian Society of Spiritual Studies, directed by Rivail until his death.
His ‘protective spirit’ told him that they had already met in a previous life. It was in the time of the Druids, in the Gaul, and his name was ‘Allan Kardec’. The Spirits' Book was the first work where the author used this name instead of his real name. It also represents the birth of the Latin spiritism. This, unlike the Anglo-Saxon, defends the theory of reincarnation, particularly as an explanation for the origin of inequality among men, which is often seen as unfair.
The work contains: the special teaching of the spirits regarding the theory of all the types of events, the means of communication with the invisible world, the development of mediumship, and the difficulties and tricks that can be found in the practice of spiritism.
The Book of Mediums, which occupies precisely this natural and supernatural ability, has two main parts. In the first part, Allan Kardec examined the ‘preliminary knowledge’ of the spiritual world: it is about the existence of spirits, the supernatural and the marvellous, the method of proceeding with the materialists and sceptics to conclude with ‘systems’.
The second part talks about ‘the spirit manifestations’ and is analysing and experimentation of the spirit method of 'knowledge' and 'communication' which foundation is located in the faculty of mediumship of the human being.
