Book Short Summary:

Time and again, God has sent Mary to earth to warn us about punishments to come. Here, the author details the history and prophecies surrounding Mary's major appearances, including: o Our Lady of Guadalupe: Mexico 1531 o Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal: Paris, France 1830 o Our Lady of Lourdes: France 1858 o Our Lady of the Rosary: F�tima, Portugal 1917 o The Queen of Peace: Medjugorje, Bosnia-Herzegovina 1981-present. Many of Mary's messages foretold what are now elements of our past: the world wars, the rise of communism, the suffering of Pope John Paul II. They also foresee what is still to come: the chastisement, the Antichrist, and the Second Coming. To prepare for these events, Mary suggests praying, heeding her warnings, and following her advice-"Let your only instruments always be love. By love turn everything into good which Satan desires to destroy and possess."

Book Short Summary:

There is no female religious figure so widely known and revered as the Virgin Mary. Mary has inspired in cultures around the world a deep devotion, a desire to emulate her virtue, and a strong belief in her power. Perhaps no population has been so deeply affected by this maternal figure as Filipino Catholics, whose apparitions of Mary have increased in response to recent events, drawing from a broad repertoire of the Catholic supernatural and pulling attention to new articulations of Christianity in the Global South. In Mother Figured, historical anthropologist Deirdre de la Cruz offers a detailed examination of several appearances and miracles of the Virgin Mary in the Philippines from materials and sites ranging from the mid-nineteenth century to the present. By analyzing the effects of the mass media on the perception and proliferation of apparition phenomena, de la Cruz charts the intriguing emergence of new voices in the Philippines that are broadcasting Marian discourse globally. Based on two years of ethnographic fieldwork and hitherto unexplored archives in the Philippines, the United States, and Spain, Mother Figured documents the conditions of Marian devotion’s modern development and tracks how it has transformed Filipinos’ social and political role within the greater Catholic world.

Did Jesus rise physically from the dead, or did he rise as a real, non-bodily apparition, like those reported in the parapsychological literature? In this book, which is the first book-length examination of the question in over fifty years, Jake O'Connell argues in favor of the physical resurrection hypothesis. In order to do so, he employs Bayes' Theorem, a mathematical theorem which encapsulates the way humans think when they analyze the probability of a hypothesis. In addition, he provides a thorough overview of the evidence for the reality of apparitions of the dead.

Book Short Summary:

Walt Whitman called the Orient "The Past! the Past! the Past!" but East Asia was remarkably present for the United States in the twentieth century. Apparitions of Asia reads American literary expressions during a century of U.S.-East Asian alliances in which the Far East is imagined as both near and contemporary. Commercial and political bridges across the Pacific generated American literary fantasies of ethical and spiritual accord; Park examines American bards who capitalized on these ties and considers the price of such intimacies for Asian American poets. l l The book begins its literary history with the poetry of Ernest Fenollosa, who called for "The Future Union of East and West." From this prime instigator of the Gilded Age, Park newly considers the Orient of Ezra Pound, who turned to China to lay the groundwork for his poetics and ethics. Park argues that Pound's Orient was bound to his America, and she traces this American-East Asian nexus into the work of Gary Snyder, who found a native American spirituality in Zen. The second half of Apparitions of Asia considers the creation of Asian America against this backdrop of trans-pacific alliances. Park analyzes the burden of American Orientalism for Asian American poetry, and she argues that the innovations of Lawson Fusao Inada offer a critique of this literary past. Finally, she analyzes two Asian American poets, Theresa Hak Kyung Cha and Myung Mi Kim, who return to modernist forms in order to reveal a history of American interventions in East Asia.

Book Short Summary:

“The process by which these supernatural events are authenticated is expertly told by John Thavis, one of the world’s leading Vaticanologists. In fact, that a book on so secretive and complex a topic is so deeply researched, beautifully written, and artfully told is something of a small miracle itself.”—James Martin, S.J., author of Jesus: A Pilgrimage From the New York Times bestselling author of The Vatican Diaries, a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at how the Vatican investigates claims of miraculous events Apocalyptic prophecies and miraculous apparitions are headline-grabbing events that often put the Catholic Church’s concept of “rational faith” at odds with the passion of its more zealous followers. To some, these claims teeter on the edge of absurdity. Others see them as evidence of a private connection with God. For the Vatican, the issue is much more nuanced as each supposed miraculous event could have serious theological and political consequences. In response, the Vatican has developed a highly secretive and complex evaluation system to judge the authenticity of supernatural phenomena. Former journalist John Thavis uses his thirty years’ experience covering the Vatican to shed light on this little-known process, revealing deep internal debates on the power of religious relics, private revelations, exorcisms, and more. Enlightening and accessible to Catholics and non-Catholics alike, the book illustrates the Church’s struggle to balance the tension between traditional beliefs and contemporary skepticism.

Book Short Summary:

An influential ghost reference book from “a pioneer of paranormal research who developed theories still relevant today” (The Spook Isles). Apparitions delves into G.N.M Tyrrell’s ghost classification method, an interesting and thought-provoking system that is still in use today. Tyrrell’s four categories include experiments, crisis, post-mortem and ghosts. Tyrrell develops the idea that the apparition may be a way for the unconscious part of the mind to bring to consciousness information that has been paranormally acquired—in crisis cases, for example. He introduces an evocative metaphor of a mental ‘stage-carpenter,’ behind the scenes in the unconscious part of the mind, and constructing the quasi-perceptual experience that eventually appears on the stage of consciousness, so that it embodies paranormal information in a symbolic way. Tyrrell first introduced the term out-of-body-experience in this book. Apparitions is part of The Paranormal, a series that resurrects rare titles, classic publications, and out-of-print texts, as well as publishes new supernatural and otherworldly ebooks for the digital age. The series includes a range of paranormal subjects from angels, fairies, and UFOs to near-death experiences, vampires, ghosts, and witchcraft.

Book Short Summary:

Marian Apparitions in Cultural Contexts provides an analysis of collective phenomena, specifically mass visions of the Virgin Mary, from a psychoanalytical perspective. It draws from Jung’s compensation theoretical model with the aim of merging depth-psychology and historical material from the Zeitoun case. Offering an original interpretation of this phenomenon from a Jungian psychological perspective, the book provides stimulating insights to any person interested in these supernatural events, whether general readers with active curiosity or scholars with broad intellectual interests. A review of the literature points to a prevailing socio-political approach to examining visions of the Virgin Mary, while a psychoanalytical approach is generally lacking. Musso draws from Jung’s compensation theoretical model in Flying Saucers with the aim of merging depth-psychology and historical material. Common themes and symbols are extracted and interpreted from the empirical material and analyzed along with Egyptian social and political data. The book concludes with a discussion on how depth psychological principles grounded in empirical and historical material could be applied in order to explicate cases of mass visions. An original interdisciplinary exploration of cultural phenomena, Marian Apparitions in Cultural Contexts will be of value to academics and students in the fields of psychoanalysis, analytical psychology, political science, and religious studies. This book will also be of interest among Jungian scholars and practitioners in applications of depth psychology to cultural phenomena.

Book Short Summary:

The Great apparitions -- starting with Guadeloupe in 1531 -- occur with a steady and increasing drumbeat across the decades and centuries. The places and the principals involved change, but the messages calling people to turn from lives of violence and sin and to seek repentance are remarkably similar. By focusing on the most widely known and documented appearances and presenting them in chronological order, the events and the messages emerge in a powerful way. Swann shows how advances in science have placed the apparitions in a more intriguing light. One of the historic challenges concerning them was how could something which was not there be there in a way that registered on the eye mechanisms. The discovery of holography, where images that appear to be three-dimensional having bulk, shape and mass, images that can even be photographed, has provided an analogy that enlarges our perception of the physical laws and challenges the skeptics' verdict of hallucination. Catholic or not, religious or not, believer or not, this fascinating and compelling account of the appearances of Mary challenges readers to reflect on the messages and their possible consequences for our civilization and for our future.

Book Short Summary:

In the 18th century, the stories of witches, ghosts and vampires were taken for the true records, not for legends. In the documents of those times, the mentions of the dead risen from the tombs were often recorded alongside with the mentions of natural disasters like floods and fires. Yet, even in those times, there were doubts about the reality of such episodes. The society needed a tool to tell a true record of vampirism or witchcraft from the faked one. The Abbot Don Augustin Calmet, also known as a Black Monk, with the approval of the King of France, developed a set of rules for determining the legitimacy of such records. His rules based on the philosophical reasoning and scientific examination. This book is a "How to" manual for dealing with the cases of witchcraft, vampirism, ghost appearance or possession. Additionally, this book gives a deep look in the history of these phenomena. In its time, the work by Calmet was perceived the European society of the Age of Rason as scientific research.

Luciano Monari, although confirming what had been decided by the Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith (that is, that at the present moment the presence of the supernatural is not ascertained in the events here concerned), he reconfirmed the lawfulness of the cult of Mary Mystical Rose and Mother of the Church – which had already been acknowledged in 2001 by his predecessor Mons. Giulio Sanguineti – and dictated its condidtions.

Book Short Summary:

La littérature sur les apparitions de la Vierge Marie prolifère, mais aucun ouvrage d’ensemble n’existait jusqu’à présent sur ce sujet. Plus de 2400 apparitions (toutes celles qui ont laissé une trace dans l’histoire) sont ici racontées et analysées. Véritable encyclopédie rédigée avec le concours de spécialistes qualifiés, ce dictionnaire précise l’objet, la méthode, les promesses et l’apport d’une quinzaine de disciplines, de la médecine à la sociologie, de la psychanalyse à l’histoire, de la mystique au droit canon. Phénomène beaucoup plus ancien qu’on ne le croit souvent, les apparitions sont un signe de contradiction entre ceux qui les tiennent pour une pathologie ou un effet de la subjectivité et de multiples voyants qui les prennent comme des messages du ciel. Pour leur part, l’Église et sa hiérarchie les regardent avec une infinie méfiance et considèrent qu’elles ne relèvent ni de la norme ni du dogme. Ce qui est peut-être un excès de prudence les conduit à dissuader voire à réprimer l’adhésion des fidèles, et la multiplication des apparitions au XXe siècle les ont encore raidis sur leurs positions : en deux siècles, quatorze (dont cinq récentes) apparitions seulement ont été formellement reconnues. Certaines, très célèbres – comme celle de la « rue du Bac » avec la Médaille miraculeuse. S’adressant à la fois à ceux qui sont opposés aux apparitions et à ceux qui y sont favorables, ce dictionnaire livre une abondante information objective, factuelle et phénoménologique, et promeut de nouveaux questionnements scientifiques. Ses articles très documentés évaluent le positif et le négatif et font progresser les moyens de discernement : une apparition peut-elle être une communication ? et quelles approches nouvelles permettront de le savoir ?

Book Short Summary:

Cinema and opera have become intertwined in a variety of powerful and unusual ways. Vocal Apparitions tells the story of this fascinating intersection, interprets how it occurred, and explores what happens when opera is projected onto the medium of film. Michal Grover-Friedlander finds striking affinities between film and opera--from Lon Chaney's classic silent film, The Phantom of the Opera, to the Marx Brothers' A Night at the Opera to Fellini's E la nave va. One of the guiding questions of this book is what occurs when what is aesthetically essential about one medium is transposed into the aesthetic field of the other. For example, Grover-Friedlander's comparison of an opera by Poulenc and a Rossellini film, both based on Cocteau's play The Human Voice, shows the relation of the vocal and the visual to be surprisingly affected by the choice of the medium. Her analysis of the Marx Brothers' A Night at the Opera demonstrates how, as a response to opera's infatuation with death, cinema comically acts out a correction of opera's fate. Grover-Friedlander argues that filmed operas such as Zeffirelli's Otello and Friedrich's Falstaff show the impossibility of a direct transformation of the operatic into the cinematic. Paradoxically, cinema at times can be more operatic than opera itself, thus capturing something essential that escapes opera's self-understanding. A remarkable look at how cinema has been haunted--and transformed--by opera, Vocal Apparitions reveals something original and important about each medium.

On y suit la marche de l'événement religieux le plus extraordinaire peut-être du XIXe siècle, à travers la personne de Bernadette : les surprises, les réactions des témoins, leurs oppositions, leurs conversions aussi. On assiste à la naissance de Lourdes par un reportage auquel rien n'échappe... Ce récit limpide est le fruit d'un travail scientifique de plus de quinze années, accompli à la demande de l'évêque de Lourdes, Monseigneur Théas. L'Abbé René Laurentin a dépouillé tous les fonds d'archives, découvert des milliers de documents inconnus, les a soumis à l'analyse. Il a édité sept volumes de Documents authentiques, et publié une Histoire authentique des Apparitions en six volumes : travaux qui font autorité. Le présent ouvrage livre le résultat de cette recherche au grand public sous forme d'un récit dont chaque détail a été rigoureusement établi dans les volumes antérieurs. Il manifeste, en conclusion, le sens évangélique de Lourdes, pour les pèlerins, pour les malades, pour tous ceux qui s'interrogent sur cet événement exceptionnel.

Book Short Summary:

In the past two centuries hundreds of apparitions of the Virgin Mary have been reported, drawing crowds to the seers and the sites and constituting events of great religious significance for millions of people worldwide. Here Sandra Zimdars-Swartz provides a detective-like investigation of the experiences and interpretations of six major apparitions, including those at La Salette and Lourdes in France during the mid-nineteenth century; at Fatima, Portugal, in 1917; and the more recent ones at San Damiano, Italy; Garabandal, Spain; and Medjugorje, Yugoslavia, where the apparitions continue. Adopting a phenomenological approach to these "encounters with Mary"--one that is neither apologetic nor antagonistic--the author explores the tension between the personal meaning of the events for their subjects and the public appropriation of this meaning by a larger religious community. Along the way she examines the backgrounds of the seers, their willingness or reluctance to talk about the apparitions and their messages, the amount of emotional support they received from family and community as news of the apparitions spread, the reports of miracles at apparition sites, the reactions of local authorities, and the steps taken by the Roman Catholic Church in officially recognizing or rejecting the apparitions as worthy of belief. The author concludes with a survey of religious worldviews based on Marian apparitions, focusing especially on the now-popular transcultural apocalyptic nature of these messages to the modern world. Originally published in 1991. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.

Book Short Summary:

Kenya, 1947. Les membres d'un safari conduit par Remington, un écrivain américain, vont de découverte en surprise. D'abord, un guerrier masai est dévoré par un fauve. Les indigènes incriminent Batoo, l' homme-démon . Puis un animal inconnu d'une taille gigantesque fait son apparition. Enfin, quelques jours plus tard, tous les participants au safari disparaissent corps et biens sans laisser la moindre trace. Une jeune femme, miss Austin, va tenter de résoudre cette énigme. Mais elle n'est pas la seule. Dans un monde plongé en pleine guerre froide, plusieurs grandes puissances s'intéressent de près à ces phénomènes surnaturels... Avec Kenya , Léo et Rodolphe entament une nouvelle collaboration tout en poursuivant leur série Trent . On retrouve les ingrédients habituels des deux auteurs : chez Rodolphe, un savant cocktail d'aventure, d'action et de mystère. Chez Léo, ce goût prononcé des créatures imaginaires et de l'irruption du fantastique dans la réalité quotidienne. Cette fois, à la différence de Trent , nous avons tout fait ensemble, raconte le dessinateur. Nous imaginons la trâme tous les deux, puis Rodolphe affine les personnages et fait le découpage et les dialogues. C'est vraiment enthousiasmant ! Résultat ? Une histoire fantastique pleine de choses bizarroïdes... , résume Léo. Et une vision de l'Afrique assez éloignée de ce que l'on peut lire habituellement. La preuve : ce n'est pas tous les jours que l'on découvre, perdu en plein coeur de la savane, un palazzo italien habité par un authentique représentant de la noblesse...

Book Short Summary:

Un recueil de textes commentés pour découvrir ou redécouvrir la pensée chrétienne à travers l'un de ses guides. Si de nombreux sanctuaires mariaux sont célèbres dans le monde, le contenu des messages de la Vierge est peu connu, comme aussi leur « évolution » dans le temps et leur fine actualité. Selon l’ordre chronologique de ces faits historiques à dimension surnaturelle accueillis d’une manière ou d’une autre par l'Eglise catholique, l’auteur nous guide pour approfondir avec simplicité le message évangélique de Guadalupe au Mexique (1531), Vailankanni en Inde (1580), Le Laus dans les Alpes (1664), La rue du Bac à Paris (1830), La Salette (1846), ainsi que Lourdes (1858) et Pontmain (1871) - en France -, Knock en Irlande (1879), Fatima au Portugal (1917), Banneux (1933) en Belgique, Amsterdam au Pays-Bas (1945), L’Ile Bouchard (1947), en France, Akita au Japon (1973), Kibeho au Rwanda (1981) et San Nicolás en Argentine (1983), sanctuaire visité par le cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio avant son élection comme successeur de Pierre. Se ressourcer et apprendre pendant quinze jours en compagnie d'un maître spirituel. EXTRAIT L’apparition en Mayenne se déroule alors que la France perd une guerre qu’elle a elle-même déclarée, contre la Prusse. Nous sommes environ quatre mois après la défaite de l’empereur Napoléon III à Sedan, en 1870. La Vierge se montre à sept enfants, à Pontmain, le 17 janvier 1871. Les troupes allemandes assiègent encore Paris, qui s’apprête à capituler dix jours plus tard, au terme d’un siège épuisant qui dura plusieurs mois. Dans la mémoire nationale française demeure le souvenir de la décisive victoire de Bouvines, contre l’empereur d’Allemagne excommunié par le Pape, remportée sous l’étendard royal bleu constellé de lys d’or, avec en tête des troupes l’oriflamme rouge de l’abbaye de Saint-Denis baptisé « Montjoie », trois couleurs dont est symboliquement revêtue NotreDame de Pontmain. Ainsi à nouveau l’actua lité céleste est au rendez-vous de l’histoire des hommes, même si nos mémoires parfois embuées tendent souvent à refuser l’évidence de l’inlassable fidélité de Dieu. A PROPOS DE L'AUTEUR François Vayne, journaliste, père de famille et grand-père, a été pendant 26 ans en poste au sanctuaire de Lourdes notamment en tant que directeur de la communication. Il dirige actuellement au Vatican la communication de l’Ordre du Saint-Sépulcre, institution pontificale en charge de soutenir les chrétiens de Terre sainte et du Moyen-Orient. À PROPOS DE LA COLLECTION La collection Prier avec, ce sont : • Des livres sources – pour passer quinze jours en compagnie d’un maître spirituel à la manière de ces temps de retraite qui ouvrent une brèche dans notre univers quotidien. • Des livres pratiques – un rappel biographique en début de volume; – un itinéraire balisé en introduction; – une entrée dans la prière répartie sur les quinze chapitres de l’ouvrage; – pour aller plus loin, une bibliographie expliquée. • Des livres accessibles – un ressourcement qui va à l’essentiel pour des chrétiens actifs; – une information donnée de l’intérieur pour un public plus large.

Book Short Summary:

Though the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima took place almost a hundred years ago, Our Lady's call to prayer and penance for the salvation of souls and peace in the world is as relevant now as when first delivered to three Portuguese peasant children in 1917. At the peak of the First World War, our Lady warned of another worldwide conflict, the rise and spread of Communism, and a terrible persecution of the Church unless people repented of their sins and returned to God. She also requested devotion to her Immaculate Heart and a special consecration of Russia. Much of what Our Lady of Fatima said was revealed soon after her appearances, but the third and final "secret", which was not a message but a prophetic vision seen by the children, was not unveiled by the Vatican until 2000. Pope John Paul II, who read the third secret while recovering from the attempt upon his life in 1981, believed the vision signified the sufferings the Church had endured in the twentieth century. Because of the prophetic nature of her messages, Our Lady of Fatima has been the subject of much controversy and speculation. In this book, Father Andrew Apostoli carefully analyzes the events that took place in Fatima and clears up lingering questions and doubts about their meaning. He also challenges the reader to hear anew the call of Our Lady to prayer and sacrifice, for the world is ever in need of generous hearts willing to make reparation for those in danger of losing their way to God.
