Hynes s reconstruction of nineteenth century Knock October 16, 2009
Reviewer: The Catholic Historical Review from Republic of Ireland  
Hynes s reconstruction of nineteenth century Knock is exemplary in its intellectual daring and the depth of evidence deployed  and his discussion of how the seers  accounts were reshaped when recorded by clerical investigators who assumed the authenticity of the vision they were supposed to be  investigating is very challenging.

Eugene Hynes study of the apparition of the Virgi July 22, 2009
Reviewer: Carole M. Cusak Australasian Journal of Irish Stu from Republic of Ireland  
Eugene Hynes  study of the apparition of the Virgin Mary at Knock County Mayo  in 1879 is a valuable contribution to the field of academic studies of Marian apparitions in the modern world. This is an important book that should attract a wide readership.  Hynes is an academic sociologist  but he writes in a clear and generally jargon free manner.
