"Cristo d'Angelo"

Famous spirit control, first manifested in a direct voice séance of the medium George Valiantine in 1922 in the United States. Five years later, on March 25, 1927, the voice of "Cristo d'Angelo" was recorded on gramophone in Lord Charles Hope's apartment in London. It was heard a month later by the Italian Marquis Carlo Centurione Scotto in the apartment ofH. Dennis Bradley at a Valiantine séance. On request of the Marquis, "Cristo d'Angelo" established himself as his control from May 12, 1927, the day of the first Millesimo séance onward but also manifested several times at the "Margery" séances in Boston when Valiantine was present. The spirit control figured in some interesting cross-correspondences between Millesimo Castle and Boston records.

Cristo d'Angelo claimed he was a Sicilian shepherd on earth, a native of Sant Anselmo al Monte in the neighborhood of Palermo, and was with Garibaldi at Calatifimi. He died at age 76 of acute pneumonia. Dr. Carlo Marchese, a physician of Catania, attempted to trace his life. He found a village of the name in the province of Palermo, but obtained no further proof of the real existence of Cristo d'Angelo.
