  • Résumé

Born of the so-called Victorian 'pseudo science' of mesmerism, the seance enjoyed a late 19th century golden age that ministered to the Victorian obsession with science, religious doubt, and entertainment. Mediums, psychics and somnambulists were also investigated by amateur sleuths and by scientists like Faraday and Darwin.
