In Search of the Historical Mary Magdalene: Venerated Saint or Denigrated Sinner

Led by Dr. Ann Brock, Iliff professor

Who was Mary Magadalene, and just what do we know about her? Dr. Brock will share from more than a decade of study about Mary Madalene and will discuss what makes this woman of the Bible so special. Discussion will include why Mary's reputation varies from repentant whore, to girlfirend/lover/wife of Jesus to the first Apostle and even the idea of her being the 'apostle to the apostles'. 

Session One: The Gospels and Mary Magdalene

Session Two: The Nag Hammadi texts and Mary Magdalene

Session Three: Traditions about Mary Magdalene through the Ages

Session Four: Will the Real Mary Magdalene Please Stand Up?
