Format: Paperback
Patrick Marnham is an English writer, journalist and biographer; as a journalist, he has written for Private Eye, The Independent and The Spectator among others. He served as Literary Editor of The Spectator and Paris correspondent of The Independent. His other books include Resistance and Betrayal: The Death and Life of the Greatest Hero of the French Resistance, Dreaming with His Eyes Open: A Life of Diego Rivera, Wild Mary: A Life of Mary Wesley, So Far from God, Snake Dance: Journeys Beneath a Nuclear Sky, etc.

He wrote in the Preface to this 1980 book, "The popularity of the pilgrimage increases almost every year and Lourdes now receives between four and five million visitors annually... The sick pilgrims feel better, not in the sense of receiving a cure---that occurs only in a tiny fraction of cases---but in the sense of feeling stronger and happier and more reconciled to their lives... one should remember the distinction which is always made between 'miracles' and 'cures.' More then five thousand cures have been recorded by the Medical Bureau at Lourdes. A number of these have been thoroughly investigated, and a small proportion, found to be 'medically inexplicable,' have been forwarded to the appropriate bishop for consideration by a diocesan commission.
