How can we determine if a Marian apparition is worth our attention? What is the role of a visionary in a Marian apparition? What impact does the time and place of a Marian apparition have on its message?

Dr. Christopher Maunder, Senior Lecturer in Theology at York St. John University, discusses insights about Marian apparitions and visionaries gleaned from his studies of and visits to Marian apparition sites in Eurpoe in his talk entitled “Our Lady of the Nations: Apparitions of Mary in the Modern Catholic Church.” The apparitions discussed were featured in Dr. Maunder’s book “Our Lady of the Nations: Apparitions of Mary in 20th Century Europe” published by Oxford University Press in 2016. Dr. Maunder’s talk was sponsored by the Theology Dept. at Franciscan University of Steubenville.
