Is there life after death? Of what substance is the soul made? Are we left all alone, to face the mysteries of life and death or do invisible, supernatural beings stand beside us, to guide us and, at times, to trick us? The writer and scholar Alfred Breitman, who for more than 30 years studied ancient religions, introduced disciplines that fascinate us even today. Breitman took a trip back in time to meet one of the most important spiritualists of the 19th century: Gino Fanciullacci, a disciple of the great Alain Kardec. Basing their studies on the work “Spiritualism. Answers to the Discourses Made By An Evangelical Pastor in Florence,” the two authors tell the story of spiritualism and the contacts that take place between supernatural forces and flesh and blood beings.
