Arthur Conan Doyle - Spiritual Historian
By:Sophie Shapiro <mail@sophieshapiro.com>

Many people only know Arthur Conan Doyle as the creator of Sherlock Holmes. I know him as a great Spiritualist who wanted to acquaint the World with this amazing phenomena. His interests in Spiritualism started in 1918 before his son’s tragic death in World War 1.

Arthur risked his reputation and travelled to many areas of the World at his own expense to give talks and lectures on the subject. He was extremely interested in Spiritual Photography. He wrote many, many wonderful books on the subject and dedicated a great deal of time to writing The History Of Spiritualism Volume 1 and II.

He has inspired me on many occasions and I have been fascinated by his dedication and belief.

Arthur once wrote…...
My one aim in life is that this great truth, the return and communion of the dead, shall be brought home to a material World which needs it so badly…......

This painting is dedicated to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle with admiration.
