From the Visions of the Venerable Anne Catherine Emmerich 1774-1824
As recorded in the journals of Clemens Brentano
Four volume set
These four volumes record the visions of the famous 19th-century Catholic mystic, Ven. Anne Catherine Emmerich, as recorded at her bedside by Clemens Brentano. Emmerich was nun who beheld innumerable events of biblical times, going back all the way to the creation of the world. Her sense of the mysteries contained in details is amazing, inspiring even. Her visions include the fall of the Angels, the sin of Adam, Noah and the Flood, the lives of St. John the Baptist, St. Anne, St. Joseph, the Blessed Virgin Mary, and St. Mary Magdalen. The focus of her visions however, was the birth, life, public ministry, Crucifixion and Resurrection of Jesus Christ, as well as the founding of His Church. It is this that forms the content of this 4-volume set. Her visions and Brentano’s work in recording them were known to Rudolf Steiner, who valued them as being highly accurate as mystical pictures describing the actual events.
