“singularly spiritual” [SIGN] 

We've previously written about Sherlock Holmes and religion. But let's look at it from a slightly different perspective today.

Sherlock Holmes's creator (or Watson's literary agent, if you will) Arthur Conan Doyle was a sincere and wholehearted believer in spiritualism. A fact that has always seemed at odds with the most ratiocinative detectives in history.

Coupled with Conan Doyle's friendship with legendary illusionist and escape artist Harry Houdini, it's a convoluted calculation. But, as Vincent Starrett wrote, "only those things the heart believes are true."

Baker Street Elementary follows the original adventures of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson, as they and their friends work through the issues of elementary school in Victorian London. An archive of all previous episodes can be viewed at www.bakerstreetelementary.org.
