Overview

Anne Catherine Emmerich was born in Germany in 1774. As a child she believed that angels, saints, and the Holy Family visited and talked with her as she worked in the fields. At twenty-four, she had her first mystic vision of the sufferings of Christ, accompanied by stigmata and bleeding. At twenty-nine, she became an Augustinian nun and continued to have visions and stigmata. In her visions she recounted scenes from the life of Christ, which she seemed to have witnessed. These phenomena brought her fame and investigation by both science and the Church.

This book was one of the sources for Mel Gibson's motion picture, The Passion of Christ.

Editorial Reviews

Catholic Encyclopedia
"[Emmerich's] visions go into details, often slight, which give them a vividness that strongly holds the reader's interest as one graphic scene follows another in rapid succession as if visible to the physical eye. Other mystics are more concerned with ideas, she with events; others stop to meditate aloud and to guide the reader's thoughts, she lets the facts speak for themselves with the simplicity, brevity, and security of a Gospel narrative."
