Geraldine Cummins: 1890-1968


AUTHORESS, daughter of the late Professor Ashley Cummins of Cork, Ireland, remarkable automatic writer, receiving communications alleged to emanate from Phillip the Evangelist, Cleophas and F. W. H. Myers. The development of her mediumship began in December, 1923, in sittings with Miss E. B. Gibbes. She never studied theology or kindred subjects. She travelled far and wide but never visited Egypt or Palestine. Ordinarily her work of composition is very slow. In her automatic writing the speed is remarkable. On March 16, 1926, 1,750 words were produced in one hour and five minutes. Her first book, The Scripts of Cleophas supplements the Acts of the Apostles and the Epistles of St. Paul. It is a historic narrative of the early church and the work of the apostles from immediately after the death of Jesus to St. Paul’s departure from Berea for Athens. In the production of the first two sections of the book Miss Cummins was associated with F. Bligh Bond. But she received the scripts independently afterwards. In her second volume, Paul in Athens the narrative is taken up and continued.

The third: The Great Days of Ephesus follows the same line of thought. The production of these automatic scripts was witnessed by eminent theologians and other authorities. Recognised scholars who edited her books endorsed their intrinsic merit. Accepted at face value, they are epoch making. They give new meaning to several obscure passages in the Acts of the Apostles, they show close acquaintanceship with the apostolic circle and that age. They contain much which militates against subliminal origin. To take a single instance, only a very profound student could have given the head of the Jewish community in Antioch the title of Archon as the usual title was Ethnarch not long before the time referred to in the chronicle of Cleophas. Cleophas was not the immediate agent in their production. They came through the “Messenger.” Altogether seven scribes were stated to be guided by Cleophas. The chronicle itself was stated to have been known in the early Church but the existing few copies perished.
