More on The Passion

My sister’s husband has referred me to Anne Catherine Emmerich. She was an Augustinian nun at the Convent of Agnetenberg, Dulmen, Westphalia, Germany. She lived between 1774 to 1824. During that time, she had extensive visions of the crucifixion and the events leading up to it. Whether or not these are true, not one can say, but it would appear that these might have been the source of some of the scenes in Mel Gibson’s movie. Here’s just one web site that talks about her.
