      Mary Magdalene: The Battle over a Woman’s Place in History

      Mary Magdalene is one of the most controversial figures in church history. While colleges in Oxford and Cambridge are named after her, she was called a prostitute by Pope Gregory the Great; it stuck with her throughout the centuries, even though there is no biblical evidence. From the Four Biblical Gospels, which declare her to be Mother Mary’s adopted daughter, to the Egyptian Gospels, which suggest she was chosen to lead the church, to The DaVinci Code, which has her marrying Jesus, the history and truth of Mary Magdalene continue to be widely debated today. – Rev. Charles Brock, M.Litt. and Molly Monahan Lang, Ph.D
