Abstract

Grove examines the way in which Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen's 1895 discovery of X-rays confirmed many pre-existing ideas about the existence of ghosts and the way in which the photographic plate could detect realities invisible to the human eye. The arti cle situates Röntgen's discovery within a history of ghost fiction, ghost hunting, and ghost-like photographs.
