The Fátima Trilogy ~ A bold new paradigm for the enigmatic events of 1917


The Fátima Trilogy
Anomalist Books
A bold new paradigm 
for the enigmatic events of 1917
Heavenly Lights
A meticulous synthesis of history, science, and Ufology, Heavenly Lights establishes that the famed Fátima Incident of 1917 did not involve "Marian apparitions" - as is conventionally believed - but a series of close encounters with alien beings. The first history of the Fátima incident to be written by Portuguese historians based on the original documents of the case held in secrecy by the Catholic Church since the time of the apparitions, Heavenly Lights subjects all of the pertinent facts of the Fátima case to a sweeping evidentiary analysis that is at once thorough and fascinating. When it was first published in Portugal in 1995, the Jornal de Notícias heralded this work as "a literary success without precedent."
Celestial Secrets
In 1917, three Portuguese children encountered a radiant woman who told them three secrets about the fate of the Earth. The apparitions of Fátima became a legend. In 1978, historians Joaquim Fernandes and Fina d' Armada were given access to the original records of the Fátima incident that had been kept at the Sanctuary of Fátima since 1917. The celestial secrets they found within held what religion could not admit and what science could not explain. Here, for the first time, they tell the history of the 1941 "cover story" by the Church that has both shaped our modern view of the Fátima incident and obscured its true significance as the first major close encounter case of the 20th century.
Fátima Revisited
The Fátima Incident of 1917 was a critical event in the history of the paranormal. Believers and skeptics have long pondered the identity of Our Lady of Fátima, the brilliant entity who appeared above Fátima. Was she the Virgin Mary, sharing divine secrets with believers? Was she an angel, bringing a message of peace to a world at war? Or was she an alien being, inspiring humanity to look up and contemplate the mystery of the Cosmos? Now, in Fátima Revisited, an international panel of top scholars subjects the legendary apparitions of Fátima - widely regarded as a sacred religious event - to the scrutiny of modern scientific analysis; explores the connections between encounters with apparitions, angels, and aliens; and proposes a new paradigm for such unexplained phenomena. This third volume in the acclaimed trilogy, which includes the definitive histories of the Fátima case entitled Heavenly Lights and Celestial Secrets, is the result of a transdisciplinary study by the Multicultural Apparitions Research International Academic Network (Project MARIAN) at the University Fernando Pessoa in Porto, Portugal.
