Victorian Ghost Stories

Step into the shadows of the 19th century, an era of occultism and gothic intrigue, with our online lecture on Victorian Ghost Stories. Unearth forgotten tales that surpass the horror of contemporary ghost stories in their eerie allure. These stories, with their dark themes and psychological realism, are representative of the Victorian era’s fascination with the supernatural and the macabre.  The narratives, once lost in the dusty pages of antiquity, have been resurrected to chill your spine and captivate your imagination. Discover why the Victorian era, with its strange customs and mystic beliefs, crafted ghost stories that remain unparalleled in their ability to haunt the reader. Join us as we traverse the spectral landscapes of the past, where every creaking floorboard and flickering candle tells a tale of suspense and terror.
