This was begun by Torres-Solanot y Casas after a schism within the ranks of El Criterio Espiritista and its constituent groups over the issue of phenomena in spiritualism. Torres-Solanot, whose Grupo Marietta had discovered the “Medium of the Flowers” and favored phenomena, and the journal published articles on mediums' fluctuations in weight under the spirits' influence and on the moving of compass needles without physical contact-essays that would have been commonplace in the United States but were unknown in Spain. The last four issues were published in Saragossa. Catalogo Hemeroteca, Municipal de Madrid; Biblioteca Nacional de España.
