Product Description

Product Description

NOTE: This edition has a linked "Table of Contents" and has been beautifully formatted (searchable and interlinked) to work on your Amazon e-book reader and your ipod e-book reader.

Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich (German: Anna Katharina Emmerick, September 8, 1774 - February 9, 1824) was a Roman Catholic Augustinian nun, stigmatic, mystic, visionary and ecstatic.

On October 3, 2004 Anne Catherine Emmerich was beatified by Pope John Paul II.

As in all such cases, the question of her visions was set aside, and her cause adjudicated solely on the basis of her own personal sanctity and heroic virtue.

This book on the life of the Blessed Virgin Mary was the result of visions seen by Sister Anne Catherine Emmerich, with notes taken by Clemens Brentano.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Vision that Found the House Nov. 10 2013
By FCZ - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This famed account of the visions of The Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich, the 19th Century German nun and mystic who bore the stigmata, the unsealing wounds of Christ, could easily be read by believers (and written off by skeptics) as the beautiful, pious imaginings of a devout, little-educated woman whose life was otherwise relatively dull, but for one thing. Sr. Anne Catherine, who had never left Germany-- or even her small region of Germany-- described her vision regarding the precise location in what is now Turkey to which John the Evangelist had taken her when Jerusalem became to dangerous for them to remain without being martyred. The vision was recorded and published by German poet and author Clemens Brentano, and the site described by Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich, atop a high hill a few kilometers outside Ephesus (near modern Selçuk, Turkey) was located by French priest Abbé Julien Gouney, who utilized the text as a guide in 1881, and then again by two Lazarist missionaries, Father Poulin and Father Jung, from Smyrna, who rediscovered the building on July 29, 1891, again using the description from Blessed Anne Catherine's vision as their guide.

At the site was found the ruins of a small, rectangular building on the hillside above a well. The building had long been venerated by an isolated rural community descended from Christians in Ephesus; there had been strong anti-Christian sentiments in Ephesus at the time of the early Church-- St. Paul, when he preached at the forum, was drowned out by crowds shouting "Great is Artemis of Ephesus!"-- so there were good reasons for St. John having housed the Virgin Mary well outside the city, and for the Christian community to have relocated to the rural countryside later as well, and to have remained there under the Muslims.

The House of the Virgin has been rebuilt at the site (the remaining parts of the original House were integrated into the building, marked off with a red line), and the House is an important shrine for Roman Catholics and for Muslims as well. The House of the Virgin Mary is located a few miles from the early 5th Century Cathedral of St. Mary the Virgin, the first church to bear the Virgin Mary's name and site of the Council of Ephesus, the third Ecumenical council in 431, during which the title of Theotokos for the Mother of Christ was declared Orthodox. The choice to hold the Council at Ephesus in 431 AD is believed by many to further support the legitimacy of Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich's vision.

The Shrine has been visited by three Popes, Paul VI, John Paul II, and Benedict XVI.

3.0 out of 5 stars Information Not Authentic Jan. 16 2012
By Nita - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book is written in detailed day to day happenings with the Virgin Mary and her family. The book isn't written with the kind of information I'm used to reading on other visionaries. I decided to research information on Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich and found that the book has not been approved by the Catholic Church as accurate and authentic. She was, infact, a very holy woman and did receive visions; however, the information states that, "The authenticity of Brentano's writings has been questioned and critics have characterized the books as "conscious elaborations by a poet" and a "well-intentioned fraud" by Brentano". Apparently Brentano spoke a different dialect and could not transcribe Blessed Anne's information immediately and had to wait until he went home. Brentano did not complete his editing for publication until 10 years after Blessed Anne's death. If you'd like to review more information, you can go to [...]
