Who is Euripedes Barsanulfo?

Born on May 1st, 1880, in the city of Sacramento, MG, Brazil, Euripedes Barsanulfo became aware of the Spiritist Doctrine through books from Allan Kardec and experiences in the Doctrine Centers. After receiving a message from a Spiritual guide, and after being convinced of the importance and beauty of the Spiritist Doctrine, Euripedes Barsanulfo devotedthe rest of his life to working in several ways in accordance with the teachings of Spiritism.

His intentions and work were not always supported (several time opposed) by his family and many members of his community. Despite this, he developed educational and charitable activities through the organization Grupo Espirita Esperanca e Caridade which he founded in 1905. Two years later, he founded the Allan Kardec School.

Over the years, he became a well-developed healing medium, and used this opportunity to help hundreds of families in need. Under the orientation of Dr. Bezerra de Menezes, he founded the Farmacia Espirita Esperanca e Caridade – a place dedicated to the medical treatnebt of all in need of help. Needless to say, none of his work had financial profit as a goal. From 1907 to 1912, he served his city as a politician, another way he found to positively contribute to his community. Euripedes Barsanulfo died in 1918, leaving us with great example of a positive and constructive existence.
