In the mid 19th century, intelligentsia circles in Europe and the United States were pierced by spiritualistic doctrines based on a chance to communicate with the souls or spirits of the dead through a ritual of body possession performed by a medium.
All of this is ingrained in the so-called Kardecism as the basis of its doctrinal foundation.
In the rural areas, though, where illiteracy is dime a dozen and followers turn to material objects in their rituals, a different set of creeds has grown and derived into other forms of popular religiousness.

 The Career of 'Allan Kardec' - I
The chief of these is that his work constitutes the only example of a modern appraisal of mediumship that has had (and continues to have) a truly obvious and major effect upon a very significant section of human society.
Yet, despite this, Kardec remains almost unknown or poorly understood by Spiritualists in Britain; the most common, and most fatal, error being that he was a medium himself and that the teachings were his own.
He required the spirits' answers to the questions that he posed to them to 'resolve all the difficulties of the question' even in relation to morality, ethics and 'divine' justice and he had, apparently, decided that the communicators who explained this in terms of reincarnation had satisfied this criterion in the most satisfactory way.

 The Career of Allan Kardec, Steven Hume, Noah´s Ark Soc.
The Kardec spirits' explanation for failure to remember former lives was that such remembrance was only permitted if and when it should serve some useful purpose and that such memories would usually emerge only gradually, perhaps only after a great period of time.
The Kardec teachers emphasised that reincarnation is usually a matter of conscious choice after an interval in the Spirit World that is as short or long as individual circumstances demand and that it often occurs because a spirit wishes to perform some charitable act for one less fortunate or perform a particular spiritual mission.
I mentioned earlier that there is evidence that the Kardec works were a major influence on certain of the founders of modern psychology and psychiatry and also that Rivail himself was especially keen that Spiritism should play a role in the treatment of mental illness.
