A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

The traditional concept of Mary Magdalen has been one of a prostitute who devoted herself to following the ways of Jesus. All that readers know of the real Mary Magdalen comes from four biblical references in the gospels. Using evidence from early Christian writings, medieval sermons, and the art and literature of nearly 2,000 years, Haskins shows how Mary Magdalen came to epitomize the condition of women in the Church and in society. 90 illustrations.

From Booklist:

Mary Magdalen. The name conjures up many images: sinner, follower of Christ, weeping penitent, first apostle. Viewed through the secular prism offered by literature and film, where the relationship between Mary and Jesus often takes a carnal turn (the other side of the coin from the Virgin Mary), our image of Mary Magdalen becomes even more complex. Haskins does a marvelous job of introducing the figure of Mary in all her richness, leading readers through not just the canonical gospels, but also the Gnostic gospels, Renaissance literature, art history, and even Victorian photographic pornography. Haskins can't be faulted for her scholarship (reams of notes append the text), but the real pleasure of this book for the layperson is its remarkable readability. Haskins makes it clear that the appeal of Mary (as both myth and metaphor) extends well beyond those interested in religion. There's much here, too, for anyone involved with feminist politics, sociology, and, of course, literature and art. This will be a welcome addition to libraries where biographies of men crowd the religion shelves. Ilene Cooper
