This site contains material that was formerly part of the Publications section of the Walsingham Anglican Archives website. These are a selection of the Shrine’s own publications: there are more in the archive collection. Its major publications - Our Lady’s Mirror and Walsingham Review - have a website of their own [see list below]. This section still awaits some tweaking, but it seems preferable to make it available again now, at last. The old website is now divided into four parts: the main and largest, containing the core information from the old site [this one] the ‘Publications’ section of the old site, except ‘Our Lady’s Mirror and its successors’ now on its own website [link below], and the Bibliography and Biographies of Fr Patten now included on the main site [link above] the ‘Our Lady’s Mirror and its successors’ section of the old site the ‘Medieval’ section of the old site © 2005-2024 WCTA Ltd and IMFS throughout unless otherwise stated
