About the Book

The first part of Inner Life and Worlds of Soul & Spirit casts light on the nature of visionary experience, prayer, the rosary, the amen, and ways of healing. Part two presents both well-known parables and fascinating new teachings, including an allegory of marriage and of stars at birth. Part three is occupied with heaven and hell, work for “poor souls” in purgatory, the habitations of the heavenly Jerusalem, John’s Book of Revelations, the “Octangular Church,” and the Churches Triumphant and Militant. Part four focuses on such places as the spring at Matarea, the pool of Bethesda, the holy sepulcher, the praetorium, and the way of the cross in Ephesus. Part five considers Egyptian star wisdom, the star of the Magi, Jacob’s ladder, the writing of the New Testament, the chalice of the Last Supper, the “twelve new apostles,” dragons, and Satan. The final section presents themes related to Jesus, including his two genealogial trees, baptism, voice, shoulder wound, the cloth used to lower him from the cross, Veronica’s scarf, his mantle, and apparitions upon his death.

Various editions of the visions of Anne Catherine Emmerich have been compiled over the years, but only recently (2009) were the 38 volumes of the complete, original notes of these visions published. Angelico Press has drawn heavily from these notes, setting its editions apart from all others. To meet the different needs, Angelico has published the visions in three editions:

(1) 3-volume deluxe, large-format (8.5 x 11) edition of 1600 pages, with day-by-day chronology and summaries during Christ’s ministry, supplements, 42 maps, indexes, 350 scenes from the life of Jesus painted by the French painter J. James Tissot, hundreds of other illustrations. The definitive edition.

(2) 4-volume smaller-format (6 x 9) “handy” edition of 1700 pages, with day-by-day chronology, 43 maps, 149 illustrations. Same full vision text as in (1).

(3) 12-volume New Light on the Visions of Anne Catherine Emmerich series, supplementing the above editions. Each volume consists of material selected by individual or theme and supplemented with new material drawn from the original notes. Virtually every individual in the visions (approximately 250 in total) is referenced is the first 5 volumes. The remaining 7 volumes are dedicated to: the Virgin Mary, the lives of the saints, Creation, the Old Testament, inner life, spiritual works, and a 2-volume biography of Anne Catherine.


“Angelico Press has established a landmark in publishing definitive, revised editions (in many cases supplemented with material never translated before) of the visions of Anne Catherine Emmerich, who was beatified by John Paul II in 2004. This multi-volume work will be the authoritative English-language reference for her testimony.”

“To call Angelico’s new, definitive editions based upon the visions of Anne Catherine Emmerich a stunning, moving, and beautiful epic is an exercise in understatement. Their multi-volume editions detail not only the fascinating story of the stigmatist and visionary of the turn of the 19th century, but the even more enthralling stories of just what those visions contained depicted both in words and images, supplemented and made complete by previously untranslated material from the original notes of Clemens Brentano, maps, chronologies, genealogies, and everything readers need to immerse themselves in the totally gripping world of the life of Jesus Christ as God revealed it to her, as well as stories from the Old Testament and the lives of the saints, teachings on the spiritual life, heaven, hell, purgatory, and more. Can you imagine what it would be like to get an insider’s bird’s-eye view of Jesus’s three-year social mission throughout the holy land — day by day and step by step? It is here in these volumes, along with so much more that will open up readers even further to the beauty and profundity of the gospels and of other scriptures. Thank you, Angelico Press.”

About the Author

Anne Catherine Emmerich (Sept. 8, 1774–Feb. 9, 1824) lived from early childhood in almost continual vision of scenes from the Old and New Testaments. By the time she had become (at 29) an Augustinian nun, the visions were concerned primarily with the life of Jesus. In November 1812, she was permanently confined to bed, shortly thereafter received the stigmata, and was for the rest of her life sustained almost exclusively by water and the Eucharist. Many came to visit her, among them the famous poet Clemens Brentano, who was so affected by her radiance that he moved close by to record her visions. On July 29, 1820, Anne Catherine began to communicate to Brentano scenes of the day-to-day life of Jesus, which in due course encompassed the better part of his ministry. She was able to describe in extraordinary detail the places Jesus visited, his miracles and healings, his teaching activity, and the people around him (some unknown to history)—including the apostles’ journeys after the Passion. At the same time she communicated far-reaching insights into many other mysteries, including teachings on prayer and the spiritual life, spiritual healing, the saints, heaven, hell, and purgatory, the life of the Virgin Mary, the Ark of the Covenant, the Promise, the Tree of Life, the Mountain of the Prophet, and many other themes. In 2004 she was beatified by Pope John Paul II.
