British Spiritualists’ Lyceum Union
Founded in Manchester in 1889, bearing the same relation
to Spiritualist churches as the Sunday School Unions to the
churches of other religious communities. It aimed at the intellectual,
moral, and spiritual development of children along the
lines of Andrew Jackson Davis’s vision of children in the Summerland.
The BSLU encountered financial difficulties in 1940,
and it eventually merged with the Spiritualists’ National
Union in 1948.
