In ancient times, it was believed that chosen prophets could communicate with spirits of the dead by means of ventriloquism. By producing sounds with the stomach (rather than by mouth), these prophets would utter words without moving their lips, and onlookers believed the sounds came from the spirits in the prophets’ stomachs. Hence the name "ventriloquist", which literally means "belly speaker" in Latin.
