In the cases of Thérèse Neumann or Marthe Robin in the 20th century, no fraud was ever detected by observing scientists. The same is true of Catholic saints. On the other hand, there are dubious cases of inedience suspected of fraud in New Age circles today.


“In the early thirties, her case sparked off a controversy of unprecedented violence in ecclesiastical and scientific circles. It wasn't so much the stigmata that were at issue - although she was accused of hysteria or fraud - as a completely surprising phenomenon: the unheard-of. Thérèse Neumann ate and drank absolutely nothing. Medical observations proved it.”

Joachim Bouflet, Thérèse Neumann or the paradox of holiness, 14/04/1999.
