This chapter examines the history of physical mediumship connected with the heyday of the Spiritualist movement roughly around 1850 to 1930. It analyzes the careers of D. D. Home and Eusapia Palladino, explaining why their best-documented phenomena cannot be dismissed as fraudulent and why effects of the magnitude found in these cases seem no longer to occur. The phenomena recorded provide a yardstick by which to measure the significance of contemporary cases.
