  • Product Description: That a great nation like England should have given to the world and to history a witness so uncompromising, serene and heroic, is a fact which should fill the students of history with admiration. Brilliant cinematography and classical music form the setting for this history, beginning with the ice age and first traces of habitation by Celts, Romans, Saxons, Angles and Danes. The oldest records of archeology are shown, including Stone Henge and Hadrian's Wall.  St. Edmund, King Alfred, Albert the Great, King Canute and King Edward add luster to the English monarchy, ruling with holiness, building castles and abbeys which are still a part of the English landscape.  In East Anglia, Our Lady appears to a woman in the year 1061, asking that she build a replica of the Holy House of Nazareth.  Miraculously accomplished, it becomes a place of pilgrimage for the nation.  During the persecution of Henry VIII and the reign of terror, Walsingham is ransacked and the famous statue burnt at Chelsey.  There follows 400 years of vicious persecution of Catholics in England. In 1829 the Catholic Emancipation Act allows Catholics to enter public life for the first time in four centuries.  Tape 4 shows how for the first time in the history of the Church the Holy Father is pictured visiting England, where he canonizes the 40 English Martyrs.  Unity of all nations has been fixed in heaven following the present turmoil and Our Lady's era of Peace will be her triumph.
