Reader, have you ever wondered if Christian visionaries down through the centuries really saw what they claimed to have seen? This is the very question the two researchers in this twenty-first century thought-provoking work of realistic fiction long mulled over before definitively answering it; at least for themselves. What if one of them could go back in time they thought; back as it were to say thirteenth century Europe and there to be privy to the visions of a visionary. That is precisely what one of them did while the other remained in the present coordinating the visitation. He went back to see; to perceive what it was a certain visionary in the hill country of Illyria was seeing throughout his life. What they discovered was nothing short of astounding. You are hereby invited to come see and ponder for yourself their amazing visual discoveries. What bearing you will let them have on your own personal faith or ideas will be very much up to you to satisfactorily determine. But assuredly, if you are a Christian you will be brought face to face with a quandary: do these visual discoveries orientate me all the more towards Christ or all the more away from Christ; do they nurture to a greater level my faith, my hope and my love or not for my fellow human beings and for every living thing, however near or far they be in space and time?
