This program is part of the popular series from the History Channel that investigates some of civilization's unsolved mysteries and controversies. This episode takes the viewer to Fatima, Portugal, the site of one of the most famous religious events in modern times. There, on May 13, 1917, Lucia, Jacinta, and Francisco Dos Santos claimed they were visited by the Virgin Mary. The Mother of God told the sisters about events that would occur later in the 20th century. The documentary investigates the accuracy of the prophecies, including the one that the Catholic Church refused to divulge until May of 2000. Religious scholars and historians discuss that controversial decision by the Pope.
