Reuter, Florizel von (1893-?)

Reuter, Florizel von (1893-?)

Professor and director of the Master School for Violin at the Vienna State Academy of Music. His mother developed automatic writing, receiving messages in seventeen languages, many of them being evidential in character and often coming in mirror writing. In The Psychic Experiences of a Musician (1928), von Reuter gave a full analytical account of these phenomena.

His second book The Consoling Angel (1930), narrated the receipt of automatic-writing messages from a school friend of his mother's, including over three hundred proofs of identity, all dealing with matters totally unknown to von Reuter and his mother. Ernesto Bozzano considered the book to be one of the most evidential publications of the time.

A third book, A Musician's Talks with Unseen Friends (1931), is a record of automatic scripts received by von Reuter alone, dealing with ethical and philosophical matters, and given (as in the case of William Stainton Moses ) by a band of communicators.

Later von Reuter and his mother also developed direct voice and received apport phenomena in their own circle. Von Reuter lectured on psychic matters all over Germany and the British Isles. He was associated with Baron von Schrenck-Notzing in a series of experiments with the Schneider brothers.

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
