Transcript of Mary Magdalene

Mary Magdalene in the Medieval Ages
Jenn Checkley
Mary in the Bible
Luke 8:2
Jesus cast out seven demons from Mary.
Her name suggests that she is from Magdala near the Sea of Galilee.
After he cast out her demons she became a follower of Jesus. Mary was present at the Crucifixion of Jesus. John 20:11-18
As Mary wept at the grave of Jesus, she was two white angels where his body had been laid.
When she turned around Jesus was behind her.
He told her to go and tell the deciples that he had risen. Actually Mary? Throughout the bible there are other unnamed women who have been mistaken for Mary.
In Luke 7:37, Luke tells the story of a women who was a sinner. She washed Jesus' feet.
In his next verse he mentions Mary Magdalene.
This verse and the information that the city of Magdala had a reputation for prostitution have caused many to associate Mary with being a prostitute before she met Jesus. Medieval Celebration of Mary Magdalene Saint Day- July 22
On these days not only would there be church servies in your honor, there were fairs and festivals.
Dedicated churches in her honor, ex. Magdalen Tower in Edinburgh

Mary Magdalene: The Cult Katherine Jansen:
Magdalene was followed because so many people could relate to her.
Was a symbol of vanity and lust.
Embodied hope and salvation for all.
Argues that Magdalene changed the way Medieval people lived their lives.

Mary in Medieval Art Tried to humanize Mary.
In Bonaventure's "Meditations on the life of Christ" said Mary held, and kissed the feet of Jesus as he was taken down from the cross.
Since she was seen as a woman with questionable morals she often has her hair down in pictures.
Women of respectable status had their hair tucked behind their ears. What I Hope To Learn Next With the furthering of research I hope too...
Learn more about Mary's affect of the laity.
Why she was mistaken as a prostitute.
Would she had been so popular in the Medieval Ages if she wasn't a sinner gone good?
