(p.149) Epilogue
Spiritualism in Nineteenth-Century New Orleans

Melissa Daggett

University Press of Mississippi

The epilogue considers the demise and legacy of Modern American Spiritualism in the Crescent City and on a national level. During the 1880s and 1890s, the Creole circles terminated, but Spiritualism still existed at venues such as Minerva Hall. Nineteenth-century Spiritualism diversified and evolved in the 1890s on the national level. The hallmarks of Modern American Spiritualism began to fade away and were replaced with a religion more traditional with an established ministry and a stable congregation. François Dubuclet continued his association with Spiritualism by joining a Spiritualist church and encouraged relatives in Chicago to follow his example. Dubuclet and René Grandjean were active members of the First Church of Divine Fellowship of Spiritualism. The epilogue compares and contrasts nineteenth-century Spiritualism with Voodoo, and the Spiritualist and Spiritual churches. The ministries of Mother Leafy Anderson and Mother Catherine Seals in the eclectic Spiritual churches are highlighted.
