The Mary Magdalene Cover-UpMary Austin, via The Good Book Stall
This groundbreaking study seeks to uncover Mary Magdalene from all the myths and legends that surround her from Gregory the Great’s smearing of her name by associating her with Luke’s repentant sinner to the legends retold by Dan Brown in the Da Vinci Code. Esther de Boer reproduces, sometimes for the first time in English, texts from the early centuries of the church from the first century when Mary was alive to the 6th century when her image as a penitent sinner was invented, to seek to discover the truth about her. She reveals a cover up that has its roots not so much in the story of one woman but the status and role of women in the cultures within which the church grew. As she reveals through the texts the cover up that took place and uses them to rethink the history of the early church so she uncovers a role for and by women in leadership in the church. Easy to read and to be recommended.
