There is a vast amount of geographical, climatic, agricultural, historical, astronomical, and cartographical information given in Maria Valtorta’s main work. Numerous authorities in these fields have verified the accuracy of what she has reported with appropriate astonishment. Valtorta shows Jesus to have traversed the land of Palestine from one end to another in at least six cycles (some 4,000 miles), ministering in over 350 named locations, including places in Palestine known only to specialized archaeologists.

One expert (among many others) who has verified and expressed astonishment at the detailed knowledge and inexplicable accuracy of Valtorta’s description of the many places in the Holy Land described in her work is Dr. Victor Tredici, geologist, mineralogist, and president of the National Miner’s Association of Italy, and vice president of the Italian Corporation of Mining Industries, who, in 1952, emphasized:

“…the inexplicable precision of [Valtorta’s] geographical, panoramic, topographical, geological, and mineralogical knowledge of Palestine – inexplicable, because Valtorta had never gone to the Holy Land, nor did she have access to the indispensable documentation that would have furnished her with possible sources for such accurate knowledge. […] From a critical angle, what struck me most profoundly in the work, was the perfect knowledge which the writer had of Palestine and the places where the preaching of Our Lord Jesus Christ unfolded. A knowledge which in so many passages surpasses normal geographic or panoramic knowledge, directly becoming topographical and, still more, geological and mineralogical knowledge.”


Many are the localities and places that have been identified and/or archaeologically discovered during the decades following the publication of the Valtorta’s work and some of them have been identified or discovered just a few years after its publication. We list here the places that have been currently identified (“?” = uncertain location).
