I have written much about the Palmarian Catholic Church, and its history and teachings. My main contribution is the monograph A Pope of their Own: El Palmar de Troya and the Palmarian Church (1st ed. 2017, 2nd ed. 2020). Although based on many traditional Catholic beliefs, from its foundation in 1978 until today the Palmarian church has come to include increasingly unusual teachings in its creed. Today, for example, the Palmarians have a Bible own their own, which has replaced the traditional Bible as their most important holy scripture. Part of the Palmarian Bible is an official church history, or more precisely a history of the popes from St. Peter to the current Palmarian pope.

The Palmarian Bible is hardly available in public libraries and it is not available online. Probably, the Palmarian church history is even less known. As a service to researchers and others, I will scan an English version of the Sacred History or Holy Palmarian Bible. Superior Grade. According to the Infallible Magisterium of the Church. (Holy Apostolic See, El Palmar de Troya, 2012). So far, I have only scanned the Old Testament, but as soon as possible, the entire Bible in English will be available. However, an abridged German version of the Palmarian New Testament and the German Childrens’s Bible. Below you will find a scanned version of the Historical Review of all the popes, the official Palmarian church history.

For those who want a detailed analysis of the Palmarian Bible, the History of the Popes and the role of these texts in the Church, I refer to my book. Here I will just include a few words about the immediate context. In 1997, Pope Gregory XVII began to develop the work that would be called Sacred History or Holy Palmarian Bible. Claiming that the Prophet Elijah had appeared to him to explain that the current Bible was filled with errors that had been introduced by judeo-masonic groups through the centuries, it was his mission to revise it. In 2001, the Bible was published in a five-volume edition, while the most recent editions of the most advanced version are in just two volumes. Eventually, Sacred History was published in three versions–advanced, intermediate and basic levels–as well as in a richly illustrated children’s edition.

To an even greater degree than Treatise of the Mass (1992), Sacred History is a very thorough and very detailed reworking of the biblical books, based on the alleged private revelations to Gregory. The revisions were dramatic. Many parts of the biblical books were not included at all, and numerous stories are almost unrecognizable due to the allegorical and apocalyptical interpretations, which Gregory claimed reflected the original intentions of the divine author. All of this makes the work very different from the traditional Bibles, both in structure and content. The prologue to Sacred History states that the work is ‘the narration of events in the history of the People of God, or Holy church, contained in the Old and New Testaments.” Still, the Testaments are preceded by a Treatise on the Holy Trinity, as a background to everything in history. Then, it follows the biblical accounts according to Palmarian chronology.

The “History of the Popes,” or formally, Historical Review of all the Popes who have shepherded [the] Holy Church founded by Our Lord Jesus Christ was originally published as an integral part of the Palmarian Bible (2001), but now it appears in a separate volume. I have scanned the Intermediate version in English, printed by the Holy Apostolic See, El Palmar de Troya in 2013. The Historical Review, too, is based on the alleged revelations to Gregory XVII and it presents a story that is very different from the church history we know.
