Publisher Comments:

Mary Magdalene, Jesus's Closest Disciple

Marvin Meyer, one of the foremost scholars of the Gnostic Gospels:

  • translates and introduces the Gnostic and New Testament texts that together reveal the story and importance of Mary Magdalene

  • includes new translations of the Gospels of Mary, Thomas, Philip, and related texts about Mary Magdalene

  • discloses, with Esther A. De Boer, the long-suppressed story of Mary's vital role in the life of Jesus and in the formative period after his crucifixion

  • presents as authentically as possible the real Mary Magdalene

Synopsis:

An analysis of the significance of Mary Magdalene in the origins of Christianity presents a new translation of the Gospel of Mary and key portions of other religious writings, contending that the Church suppressed her story and that she was among Jesus's closest followers and confidantes. Reprint. 25,000 first printing.
