Case No. 288-Curma
This case was given by the Rev. G. VaIe Owen in Facts and the Future Life (Hutchinson, 1922).
Augustine, Bishop of Hippo in Numidia, North Africa, in the fifth century, told of a Senator named Curma who was in a death-like coma.
It lasted for several days. The first thing he said when he awoke was, "Send someone to the house of Curma the Goldsmith and see what he is doing." A messenger went. He returned and said that Curma the Goldsmith had died a short time before.
The Senator's friends asked why he had coupled his own name with that of the newly-dead man? He told them that, while in his coma, he had been in the spirit-world: he had heard the name "Curma!" called and thought it meant that he was to die, But his spirit-companions told him he was mistaken: that it was Curma the Goldsmith, not Curma the Senator who was to be brought to "the place of the dead".
"But," said Curma,"I saw many dead persons in the spirit-world and others who are still alive, myself among the number."
