This volume completes the "History of the Sanctuaries of Lourdes" collection, covering a little-known and little-studied period in the history of Lourdes (1909-1946), which began after the great celebrations of the Jubilee of the Fiftieth Anniversary of the Apparitions and ended with the death of Mgr Choquet.
The book is signed by Mgr Jacques Perrier. Custodian of the Grotto for 14 years (1998-2012), he knows Lourdes inside out, having welcomed Pope John Paul II in 2004 and then Pope Benedict XVI in 2008. The driving force behind the 150th anniversary of the Apparitions in 2008, he has accompanied many pilgrimages and bishops from all over the world.
Mgr Perrier turns historian to help us discover a period in the history of Lourdes and pilgrimages marked by two major world conflicts. This well-documented, fast-paced and dense work provides a narrative that is a pleasure to read. It is complemented by two booklets with rich colour illustrations.
