Shrine Publications

The archives contain almost complete sets of Walsingham publications from the earliest days of the restoration. Our Lady's Mirror charts the publication of guides, manuals and historical work, as well as small items like prayer cards, postcards, medals and badges. Guides and manuals in particular have run into many editions, and it is intended in due course to give publishing and contents details of these below and of the others not yet shown here. Twenty-six are scanned original texts (as indicated below): only the Shrine's own publications can be shown scanned, for copyright reasons.
