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.
