Image, 9780385513180, 220pp.
Publication Date: November 21, 2006
Chilton's descriptions of who Mary Magdalene was and what she did challenge the male-dominated history of Christianity familiar to most readers. Placing Mary within the traditions of Jewish female savants, Chilton presents a visionary figure who was fully immersed in the mystical practices that shaped Jesus' own teachings and a woman who was a religious master in her own right.
