In her books Maria Valtora describes her observations in great detail. According to the FONDAZIONE EREDE di MARIA VALTORTA ONLUS, which manages Maria Valtorta's writings, Maria Valtorta did not want these to be summarized. I understand this because in summaries a lot can be left out or statements or events can be brought out of context. What I'm trying to do here is to provide a fact-based overview so that the reader gets an idea of what's discussed in each paragraph of the book and can more easily select specific chapters for reading. However, I recommend reading the entire work as it is very informative and helpful in order to better understand the gospel and the general context of certain events that Jesus was experiencing.

Maria Valtorta's books can be bought online e.g. at the publisher parvis

However, they are also available free of charge on the Internet on the following pages: 

- English (divided into 5 pdf files):
- Original language Italian (each chapter individually):
 German (all in one pdf):
