Luminations: Objects from the Archive

On Thursday 5 September, the Swedenborg Society will host LUMINATIONS: AN EVENING OF ESOTERIC PHOTOGRAPHY as part of the Congress for Curious People 2013. Our very own Alex Murray, assistant librarian and archivist, will begin the event with a fascinating (and sometimes comedic) talk on the Society’s historical relationship with the Spiritualist movement. Alex has been inspired by the spirit photographs and other fascinating objects in our unique archive, and will use these to illustrate his talk. These objects will also be on display in the Wynter Room throughout the evening, but you can also catch a glimpse of a selection of them below… This event is currently FULLY BOOKED but a few places will become available on Monday. Please keep an eye on this booking page for updates.
