Good Friday on Drugs (1962)

On Good Friday 1962 researcher Walter Pahnke administered 10 theology mind altering drugs before the church service – with surprising consequences. Even 25 years after the experiment the test subjects – a lot of them became priests – described the Good Friday service of 1962 as one of the high points in their spiritual lives.

So writes Reto Schneider in the web site for his book The Mad Science Book: 100 amazing experiments from the history of science, newly published in an English  (UK) edition (which we described recently).
