Spiritual Athenaeum
Briefly the headquarters of British Spiritualists in London
in 1866. The post of residential secretary was offered to D. D.
Home. The real intent behind the foundation’s offer was to
help Home, who was at the time struggling with financial difficulties.
When, owing to a change of fortune, Home resigned his
post, the institution died a natural death. John Elliotson was
among those who sat on the council.
