An intimate and loving look at Mary through the eyes of medieval song (from the 12th to the 16th centuries), with readings from the fascinating gnostic ‘Gospel of Mary Magdalene’.
As Claire Pfann, academic dean at the University of the Holy Land in Jerusalem, said, “Mary Magdalene must be seen for what she was: An independent woman who has discretionary time and wealth from the city of Magdala, not identified by a father or a husband, whose life was dramatically restored, healed, changed by her encounter with this Jewish itinerant teacher and healer, Jesus of Nazareth.”
