    The Meaning of Mary Magdalene

    Discovering the Woman at the Heart of Christianity

    • by
    • Cynthia Bourgeault
    Mary Magdalene is one of the most influential symbols in the history of Christianity—yet, if you look in the Bible, you’ll find only a handful of verses that speak of her. How did she become such a compelling saint in the face of such paltry evidence? In her effort to answer that question, Cynthia Bourgeault examines the Bible, church tradition, art, legend, and newly discovered texts to see what’s there.… Read More
