This was not the first Dutch spiritualist journal, being preceded notably by Elise van Calcar’s Op de grenzen van twee werelden, but it was the largest and longest lived and differed from its predecessors by emphasizing the "scientific" side of spiritualism (psychical research) rather than spiritualism’s Christian elements. Johan Simon Gobel (1847-1916) had founded the Dutch Spiritist Association Harmonia in 1888, of which this journal was the organ, run initially by Gobel and H.N. de Fremery (1868-1940). The journal contained articles on the leading lights of spiritualism and psychical research, with discussions of the current internecine squabbles in the area, letters, and extensive international book reviews. Advertised in Neue Metaphysische Rundschau 1/5-7 (December 1897-February 1898): 98. Complete run through 1941 in (891 issues).
