It is not easy to study the Palmarian church. Apart from the Palmarian written material, I have been in contact with a number of ex-members, who have helped me. In this list of sources and literature, you will be able to find the documents, books and articles which I refer to in my texts published on this website.

Official Palmarian Church Documents

Few Palmarian documents are available in research libraries (see http://www.worldcat.org). One exception is the library of the Centro Studi sulle Nuove Religioni (CESNUR) in Turin, Italy (www.cesnur.org), which has an impressive collection of Palmarian imprints: altogether 72 titles. Most of them are sermons from the 1990s and early 2000s, but they also hold copies of major works such as the Catechisms, the Palmarian Bible and the Treatise on the Mass. The great majority of the texts are in Spanish, but some are Italian versions.

In my articles published on my website I have referred to the following editions in Spanish, English, German and Portuguese that I have consulted. There are many other church publications and I try to find more. So if anyone would be able to provide me with documents or copies of such material I would be most grateful.
