Item Description...
This groundbreaking book looks at the major approved Marian apparitions of the last five centuries and relates them to important historical moments: the Reformation, the French and Russian Revolutions, the rise of Nazism. These Marian apparitions, and particularly Fatima, are not historically unimportant events, but rather follow a preordained plan: they have a crucial role in helping us to see how the modern world, with all its problems, has developed. Donal Foley makes clear the fascinating and intriguing connections between Marian apparitions and the Scriptural types of Mary found in the Bible, a crucial element in the theology and exegesis of the early Church Fathers. By understanding these biblical types and their symbolism we see that each of the apparitions has a much greater significance for both the Church and the modern world than has generally been recognised. Here is a convincing demonstration that the future of the Church, and the papacy, is intimately bound up with a proper understanding of the role of Mary: there will only be true peace in the world when her message is accepted and lived. If you thought you really understood how the modern world developed, and the role and meaning of Marian apparitions, then this book will make you think again. 'Donal Foley has written a book with an extraordinary message.' Aidan Nichols,O.P. 'A very important contribution to our understanding and appreciation of private revelations. Far from being random events without relation to divine Providence or substitutes and supplements of public revelation, the approved Marian apparitions of modern times (beginning with that of Guadalupe in Mexico in 1531) reveal a pattern foretold in the Bible.these revelations are events at the center of the history in which they occur and in virtue of the biblical typology which they incorporate so profoundly enable us correctly to interpret and participate in that history. Not only scholars and believers, but also the general public will find this volume informative and inspirational.' Peter M. Fehlner, F.I. Donal Anthony Foley has degrees in Humanities and Theology and lives in Nottingham, England. He now combines writing with part-time teaching. He has been interested in Fatima since the 1980s, and has made a particular study of Marian apparitions since the mid-90s. He has written articles for a number of Catholic magazines including the Homiletic and Pastoral Review and has produced a Catholic website particularly aimed at promoting Fatima and apparition discernment; this can be accessed at:

Reviews - What do our customers think?
This is legend not document history  Dec 9, 2007
If all the "old tailored fatimists" as catholics wanted open their eyes and minds we would have for sure a much better religious and spiritual confort and global reward. Its amazing that recently the Portuguese daily press published a "recomendation" from Vatican after the meeting of Pope Benedict XVI with the bishops of Portugal, concluding that the catholicism in this country was "too much centered in the Marian cult". A good point of departure for any sincere believer that wants to know the true and original documents of Fatima 1917 also known by "Fatima I" by Portuguese scholars Dr. Joaquim Fernandes and Fina d'Armada. Read "Celestial Secrets" and "Heavenly Lights".
Bringing history together  Mar 25, 2006
For anyone interested in world events, and in particular the collapse
of the Soviet Union, Donal Foley's latest book brings together the
underlying - and often unsuspected - threads of history. It manages
to achieve three purposes, all in a clear and very readable manner.
The primary purpose is to relate and explain the interventions of the
Virgin Mary in human history over the past half-millennium. This it
does in a dispassionate manner that will resonate with the reader of
any religious faith or none.
At the same time, it draws fascinating parallels with persons and
events in the Old Testament, illustrating how Mary stands between the
two covenants, uniting the continuing story of God's dealing with
mankind. Foley even manages to explain the significance of Bernadette
of Lourdes eating leaves!
(The book deals with only authentic Marian apparitions; the false
ones will be the subject of a further book by Donal Foley.)
Beyond these two aspects of the book, however, and quite apart from
the role of Mary, Foley's account of developments in European history
from the Reformation to the present day uncovers a continuing pattern
of cause and effect. The historical information is easily absorbed,
and in themselves, these sections of the book would make an excellent
history textbook for schools.
One commendable feature is the listing of the copious footnotes in
one continuous section at the end, making for easier reference.
For some, this book is a ringing confirmation of what they already
know; for others, an eye-opening examination of world events.
This is called revisionism  Mar 16, 2005
First of all, let me say that I have a deep respect for the catholic faith, even though I'm agnostic. That said, there's one deeply disturbing fact about this book : it's manipulating old and recent history to prove a theory, which is that Marian apparitions have had an impact on the course of our world. Just a couple of examples : Marian apparitions shortened the 2nd World War (weather on D Day could have been really bad, you see), prevented France from suffering from a civil war in 1947 (never heard about it before) and accelerated the fall of Communism. My advice : if you want to read an OBJECTIVE book about Marian apparitions (if such a thing can simply exist !), just don't buy this one...
