How to Summon Spiritsis an article by the Editors of JSTOR Daily that explores various articles and stories appearing in “The Spiritualist, a newspaper published from 1869-1882, that was filled with tales of supernatural phenomena and tips for communicating with the dead.”

Spiritualism, “the belief in and practice of communication with the dead” by way of a medium, saw growing mainstream popularity in America during the last half of the 19th century. From there, it made its way to the UK, where the London newspaper The Spiritualist was published beginning in 1869. In it, you’ll find accounts of seances, ghost stories, inspirational spirit poetry, and apparitions of long-dead relatives. It is AMAZING! There’s a full run of it on JSTOR, so click on the images below and dig in...
