Marpingen: Apparitions of the Virgin Mary in Bismarckian Germanyby David Blackbourn
In 1876, three girls from the German village of Marpingen claimed to see a vision of the Virgin Mary. Thousands flocked to the area. Now, a leading historian brilliantly reflects on Germany's crisis-laden atmosphere at the time, and offers a subtle interpretation of the interplay between politics and religion.
