Caught away in the spirit


It is for days like today that I came to library school. In my cat and class class we dealt today with main entries. AACR2 has this lovely rule:

21.26. Spirit Communications

Enter a communication presented as having been received from a spirit under the heading for the spirit (see 22.14). Make an added entry under the heading for the medium or other person recording the communication.

Which leads me to ask, shouldn't the D&C actually be under the name Jehovah (or Alpha and Omega, or the Lord, or whatever His authorized form is)? Unfortunately, it's just classed as a spiritual work and the main entry is the title.

That link to 22.14 is the rule that reads

Add (Spirit) to a heading established for a spirit communication.

Librarians are cool.
