This is an alternative narrative of human history, 'a sort of folk history of the world', which weaves together stories of men and women who had visionary experiences involving angels, daemons or other supernatural powers. A spellbinding display of the place of mystery and mysticism in human experience, it features key episodes in religious scriptures, moments in the lives of such potent cultural figures as Joan of Arc and Abraham Lincoln and tales from African, Native American and Celtic traditions.
