Outstandingly reviewed, this is the best book ever written about Mary Magdalen, published now to take advantage of the fascination with her generated by The Da Vinci Code.
In this dramatic and thought-provoking portrait of one of early Christianitys most compelling figures, the author explores two thousand years of history, art and literature. The book gives us a close-up view of Mary Magdalen and her significance in religious and cultural thought.
From the repentant whore of medieval painting to the tattooed temptress of Martin Scorsese's The Last Temptation of Christ, the figure of Mary Magdalen has endured over centuries as a powerful icon of sin and redemption. Expertly tracing nearly 2,000 years of art, literature, and history, Haskins offers a bold new study of the mysterious Magdalen. A New York Times Notable Book of the Year.
Exploring two thousand years of history, art, and literature, this dramatic and illuminating portrait studies one of the most compelling figures in early Christianity, and provides a deep analysis on the magnitude that her complex story has had on religious and cultural thought.
