On 13 May 1917 in Fátima, located in the mountainous region of central Portugal, three young shepherds said they had seen a “beautiful lady” surrounded by light, who had shared a secret with them about the future of humanity. For the next six months, new encounters took place with the mysterious “lady” accompanied by heavenly prodigies, like the surprising “miracle of the Sun”, occurring on 13 October this same year and witnessed by thousands of believers and non-believers. From that day, Fátima became one of the largest Marian shrines in the world dedicated to the Virgin Mary.  One century later, based on original documents and studies from the period, an unprecedented multidisciplinary investigation intends to analyse the political, social and cultural circumstances that made the Fatima apparitions one of the most complex myths of Catholicism and popular religiosity. The History Channel offers a global and innovative view of an extraordinary phenomenon of human belief and faith by combining traditional faith and present-day knowledge.
