Millions of people of all faiths and nations flock to Marian shrines around the world; a testament to the enduring human desire for transcendence and meaning.  Visions of the "Luminous Lady in White" abound:  at Zeitun, Egypt, she was witnessed by hundreds of thousands of Jews, Muslims, and both Protestant and Orthodox Christians.   Courtney Roberts adds a new and fascinating dimension to these miraculous sightings, exploring them through the perspective of astrology.

Visions of the Virgin
delicately unravels the tangled skein of  pre-Christian goddesses woven into the cults and legends of the Virgin Mary, and reflected in the stars,  revealing a tradition of goddess worship still very much alive and well in contemporary Christianity.
