This was yet another product of the indefatigable organizer, Oscar Henrion, who had started the Revue Belge du Spiritualisme, which centered around his spiritualist group "Union Spiritualiste" in Liege, and also seems to have published Le Phare. The Union Spiritualiste group initially published the journal and, when Henrion started the new "Union Spirite Liegoise" on the dissolution of Union Spiritualist, the new group took over the journal. All of these journals shared many of the same contributors and interests, primarily Christianity, magnetism and spiritualism. The journal boasted that it was "essentially eclectic; it gathers all opinions in order to interest the readers and lead them to study and even to reject them, which is what gives life to a review." It carried regular communications from the spirits, articles on magnetism and somnambulism and a "Cours de Magnetisme," and notes on the conferences of the "American Medium," Henri Lacroix, on "Donato" (Alfred d'Hont -- "a charlatan!") , D.D. Home, and Baron Dupotet, and discourses on the emancipation of women. The journal was noted in Reformirende Blatter, February 1883, and Le Spiritisme in 1884.
