Produced by writer Grzegorz Górny and photographer Janusz Rosikon, the duo behind several bestsellers of similar major historical and illustrated works, who conducted exhaustive research and journalistic investigations to reconstruct the life and story of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Among the many locations they traveled to are Israel, Egypt, Turkey, and Italy where they met numerous scientists, historians, biblicists, and biblical archeologists to gather material and compile photographic documentation. The result of their several years of work is a thoroughly detailed, gloriously illustrated volume, condensing all the historical knowledge available about the life of Mary.
In addition to all the historical, biographical and geographic information, this book also contains inspiring theological interpretations of the described events in Mary’s life. This moving, unique, and insightful work will greatly help us to become more familiar with the life and person of the Mother of God, and better understand the beauty and significance of Marian spirituality and devotion.
