Abbot Alexis Mermet (1866-1937), French Jesuit priest and medical dowser. Mermet used a pendulum held over patients to diagnosis disease. He was an advocate of radiesthesia (dowsing), writing the book Comment J'opere (1935) that explained how to detect water and minerals. Most of the water sources around Paris and Vienna were discovered using this method.
