An account of Anne Catherine Emmerich’s visions of the sufferings of Christ. A heart-rending and surprising summation of the passion of Christ, Emmerich’s visions remain faithful to the biblical narrative of Christ’s pain. This work was used as inspiration for the major motion picture The Passion of the Christ, directed by Mel Gibson.
