To be entitled to the journal's premium offer of a free copy of Mme. Krell's Rayonnements de la Vie Spirituelle, the subscriber had to add one franc to that price. When Dr. Clovis Alexandre Dupuis, the young military physician who founded Le Galileen of Ostende died at 30 years old, Galileen was merged with Henrion's and Marcq's Le Chercheur of Liege to form this journal. See the note by G.L. Ditson in Banner of Light, March 30, 1878. Henrion was an indefatigable worker for spiritualism and magnetism and went on to be involved in Revue Belge des Sciences Psychologiques and Le Phare, and to head the Federation Spirite Belge. This journal proclaimed that "it is open to the free discussion of spiritualism, magnetism and philosophy in general and of all related sciences," which brought it into conflict with its more rigidly spiritualist contemporary Moniteur Spirite. The journal carried short articles on world funeral customs, various heresies in Christianity, magnetism, corporal mortifications, etc., and excerpts from Camille Flammarion, P.G. Leymarie, Baron Dupotet, et al., as well as the typical Kardecist expositions on charity, virtues, love, etc. It also printed an unpublished novel by Leon Denis.
