"From the point of view of a student of spiritual literature, one of the most remarkable and distressing characteristics of 'Spiritualism' is the thoroughly unspiritual tone of its revelations. It fails to respond to the higher cravings of the soul, & never approaches the nobility & beauty of that conception of Eternal Life which has been developed by the mystics."—Evelyn Underhill (1875-1941) was an English Anglo-Catholic writer and pacifist known for her numerous works on religion and spiritual practice, in particular Christian mysticism.
