Periodical: La Verite

Summary: From Pat Deveney's database:

Verite, La.
Journal du Spiritisme.
1863-1867 Weekly
Lyon, France. Language: French. Editor: Evariste Edoux, Medium. Succeeded by: La Tribune Universelle, Journal de la Libre Conscience et de la Libre Pensee (which assumed "elements" of La Verite)
1/1, February 22, 1863-4/52, February 17, 1867. 4 pp. (then 8 pp. every other week, then 8 pp. in every issue), 7-9 francs in Lyon. Revue Spirite 10/4 (April 1867): 127-128, notes the change of name to La tribune Universelle.

In the first issue Edoux set out his reasons for starting the journal: "Spiritism has made so many converts of all classes in the last two years that it has gained acceptability everywhere. . . . Also, superior spirits have urged me to create a local journal whose purpose will be to report on the spiritualist movement, to surveil it in its strengths and weaknesses and thus bring to all the light that must serve as a lighthouse." Over a period of months the journal featured in each issue a plate of flowers observed on Venus and other planets by various mediums. The journal was Kardecist in its view of spiritualism, but occasionally ran afoul of Alan Kardec and the Revue Spirite for deviations from the orthodox doctrine. The journal featured in every issue a long article, published serially, on subjects like "the new church" (which would combine the acceptable universal elements of all religions), the "perispirt, and spiritualism through the ages and in various countries, together with multi-part histories of Louis XI and Joan of Arc, "dictated by themselves." Notable and unusual articles, usually by the unknown Philalethes and by "A.P." (who is probably Andre Pezzani), regularly appeared on L.-C. de Saint-Martin and other Illumines, Swedenborg, Abbe Pierre Fournie, and Mme Guyon, together with expositions on Eliphas Levy, rabbinical miracles, Neoplatonism, the Kabbalah, and on denial of eternal damnation and original sin, expositions of the errors of the adversaries of spiritism. Occasional articles on English-speaking mediums like the Davenport Brothers (especially after their "deconfiture" and exposure in France) and D.D. Home. BNF.
