Found some interesting tidbits about this guy, apparently did a 'stigmata' stage show in Berlin in the 20 or 30s

I found this reference on the CIA archives (just below a piece on Hanussen, interestingly enough)

The other thing was in a book by Charles Fort, describing Diebel

Does anybody know of any other information about this guy?

I found a little more about him here:

https://books.google.com.br/books?id=wUA......&f=false

Hard to find indeed, but certainly interesting. It's more towards "physiology". Apparently he could bleed and stop bleeding at will and could simulate having an unbreakable body, things that could be achieved with trickery but certainly interesting.

Interesting, good find. That book seems to treat it as a genuine phenomenon.

In the Charles Fort book, he describes the method to bleed at will - and I'll say that I have indeed seen something similar by a current day performer, though it was used for a slightly different effect.

I have to thing the crucifixion and stabbings are fake.

There is a photo of him being shot on stage. It seems to exist only as a preview, so I can't link directly, but do a google image search for 'paul diebel stigmatist stage' and it should be the first image.
