Michael Grosso, PhD, is author of The Man Who Could Fly: St. Joseph of Copertino and the Mystery of Levitation. He also edited and wrote commentary for Wings of Ecstasy: Dominico Bernini’s Vita of St. Joseph of Copertino (1772). His other books include The Millennium Myth: Love and Death and the End of Time, Final Choice: Death or Transcendence?, Soulmaking: Uncommon Paths to Self Understanding and Smile of the Universe: Miracles in an Age of Disbelief.

Here he describes a variety of paranormal events that have been reported to occur in a religious context. These include statues or images that weep or bleed, instantaneous healings, apparitions of the madonna, levitation, and Hindu puja offerings of milk that disappear. He argues that such events are often so well-attested, often with photographs and scientific corroboration, that it is reasonable to assume that they actually did occur. They are on the same spectrum as paranormal events that occur outside of a religious context.
