Ecstatici

Resource Toolbox

a kind of diviners among the ancient Greeks, who were wont to fall into a trance in which they continued a considerable time, deprived of all sense and motion, and on their recovery they gave marvellous accounts of what they had seen and heard. In Roman Catholic countries, also, many stories have been told of individuals who have been in a state of ecstasis, or trance, during which they are said to have seen and conversed with the Virgin Mary and other saints.
