If you haven’t heard of him, Daniel Dunglas Home was an extremely curious and disruptive figure to the scientific community in the 19th Century who has never been successfully defrauded, but who exactly was he? What were his beliefs? What did he, himself, think, which gave him the power to move objects and communicate with the departed?
