At the beginning of the 21st Century monsters still roam the remote, and sometimes not so remote, corners of our planet. It is our job to search for them. The Centre for Fortean Zoology [CFZ] is - we believe - the largest professional, scientific and full-time organisation in the world dedicated to cryptozoology - the study of unknown animals. Since 1992 the CFZ has carried out an unparalleled programme of research and investigation all over the world. Since 2009 we have been running the increasingly popular CFZ Blog Network, and although there has been an American branch of the CFZ for over ten years now, it is only now that it has a dedicated blog.

I would like to draw the attention of readers interested in religious forteana to an important work reissued in 2013 on this subject.

It is The Physical Phenomena of Mysticism  by Herbert Thurston, SJ.  (White Crow, 384pp., $16.40 Paperbound; also available on Kindle at $10.62)

Herbert Thurston (1856-1939) was a thoroughgoing scholar who studied anomalous phenomena and analysed it.  This particular work covers such subjects as Stigmata, Levitation, Telekinesis and the Multiplication of Food.  He is analytical in his approach.

He was also a notable student of History and Liturgy.
