More About Anne Catherine Emmerich
Anne Catherine Emmerich was born to poor parents at Westphalia, Germany in 1774. When she was twenty-eight years old she became an Augustinian nun at Dulmen, and apparently began to experience ecstasies as a result of spiritual favors. She received the Stigmata in 1813, confined to her bed, and reportedly convinced a vicar-general, Overberg, and three physicians of her sanctity. She later reported that she had seen visions of Christ and the souls in purgatory as a child, as well as a circular core with three sections representing the Trinity. She is the author of "The Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ," "The Life of the Blessed Virgin Mary," "Life of Jesus Christ and Biblical Revelations," and "The Bitter Passion and the Life of Mary." Anne Emmerich died on February 9, 1824 and was beatified by Pope John Paul II in 2004.
Anne Catherine Emmerich was born in 1774 and died in 1824.

The Life of the Blessed Virgin Mary Apr 23, 2008
Clemens Brentano had planned a Life of Mary to be based like The Dolorous Passion Of Our Lord Jesus Christ: After The Meditations Of Anne Catherine Emmerich, on his recordings of the visions of the famous mystic, Anne Catherine Emmerich. On his death in 1842 the work was left unfinished, and it was not till many years later that it was finally completed by other hands.
'Though the accounts of these visions', to quote Brentano's Preface to the Dolorous Passions, 'solemnly reject the slightest claim to bear the character of historical truth' - being merely 'a pious nun's Lenten meditations' - yet he was at pains to try to verify, often with surprising success, the scriptural, historical and geographical elements in the mystical visions he recorded. The results of his researches he embodied in notes which are here reprinted, together with further critical notes, on both the original text and Brentano's comments, by Father Sebastian Bullough, O.P.
A treasury of holy scenes and pictures which contribute to the edification and inspiration of the faithful; the Life of Mary is 'a worthy companion' to the earlier book, and should obviously be read in conjunction with the Dolorous Passion, since the one narrative often supplements the other. --- from book's back cover

Interesting read Nov 6, 2007
Anne Catherine Emmerick is the same person who inspired Mel Gibson to make the movie "The Passion". A heart felt insight to the life of Jesus Blessed Mother.
The Life of the Blessed Virgin Mary by Ann Catherine Emmerick Feb 9, 2007
I know this book. It is extremely valuable in content and articulation.
I need to alert someone about the fact I tried to order 2 of these books besides the bood on Mary Magdalen by the same author, bringing my purchase over $20.00, thus avoiding shipping charges. I hope this is understood. Del Rhames
