This is a curious story of a very strange woman. Saint, fraud, self-deceiver, imposter, religious maniac or insane. That is the question to be decided. In 1938, thousands of devout Catholics were deeply disappointed when the Vatican pronounced ‘non expedire’ on the cause of the beatification of Teresa Higginson. The judgement left the door open but, as the years have passed, the canonisation of the ‘Maid of the Mersey’ seems as far away as it was then. Teresa Higginson remains a great enigma. Today, she still has a legion of supporters who see in her the required qualities of sainthood. But to others, she has been dismissed as someone suffering from extreme religiosity or possession by the Devil. In his compelling and timely account, Richard Whittington-Egan examines her visions, her battles with the Devil and reception of the stigmata and places them in the context of her undoubted devotion and spirituality. So … who was Teresa Higginson?
