Lucie Grange - La lumière - 1882

Lucie Grange - La lumière - 1882

Lucie Grange (born Poujoulat in Saint-Étienne in 1839 - died December 31, 1908 in Paris) is a feminist medium and prophet, known under the name of Habimélah. Under the Second Empire, she was a Republican and her husband was a Freemason. Both joined the spiritualist movement in 1876 and in 1882 founded the newspaper La lumière, a sort of republican spiritualist publication. Lucie becomes a medium and creates her own movement after the death of her husband in April 1886. It is a kind of religion for the communion of love thanks to a fluid energy. She then declares herself a prophet and affirms that Mary, Moses and Saint John have designated her "Light" and charged with guiding men under the name of "Habimélah". She believes in the coming of a “new Eve” responsible for returning her primitive androgenic back to God, and is an activist for women's rights.
