Ancient Mediumship

It is, of course, unnecessary to state in detail the fact that

communication with decarnate entities has been known and practiced by

the human race from the earliest days of recorded history, and

probably long before that time, and is far from being a modern

discovery. Moreover, such communication has been known and practiced

by races of human beings other than those inhabiting Europe and

America--particularly in the oriental countries. In the oriental lands

such communication has been well established for many thousand years,

and the most ancient records give evidences of it. The Hebrew

Scriptures contain many instances of such communication, showing that

the same was an accepted fact of the life of the race at the time and

in the places at which these records were written.
