What is Spiritism? According to one of these books on this disk: "Spiritism is the name properly given to the belief that the living can and do communicate with the spirits or souls of the departed. Its main purpose is to ascertain what is their experience beyond the grave, and to find out whether it corresponds with the teachings of Christianity both as regards this life and the next. Another object is also to satisfy the curiosity of inquirers concerning the knowledge of other secret things."

What is Spiritualism? Spiritualism is a belief system or religion, postulating the belief that spirits of the dead residing in the spirit world have both the ability and the inclination to communicate with the living.
