Item Description...
This book is a dramatic, thought-provoking portrait of one of the most compelling figures in early Christianity which explores two thousand years of history, art, and literature to provide a close-up look at Mary Magdalen and her significance in religious and cultural thought. A sober and thoroughly researched cultural history packed with delights. It takes us on a journey through the four Gospels, the way that the early Fathers of the Church developed views of Jesus's teaching, the history of iconography, the narratives of medieval and Renaissance poems and plays, the recently discovered and newly translated Gnostic gospels of Nag Hammadi, Victorian photographic pornography and much more. - Michele Roberts, Independent on Sunday.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Good Book, wrong title, Later edition of Myth and Metaphor  Dec 21, 2007
Mary Magdalen: Myth and Metaphor (1993) is the best book on Mary Magdalene, and this is simply a later printing of the same book, with a new forward by the author. The title "Truth and Myth" is a mistake. The title page of the book is exactly the same as the earlier edition, and the cover says "The Essential History". The forward is not very long, but brings up some interesting things that have been written or sad about MM recently. Funny, she doesn't even mention Dan Brown and the DaVinci Code.

The paper is not as good for illustrations as the 1993 edition.
