This review is from: The Gospel of Mary Magdalene (Paperback)
This is one of the Nag-Hammadi gnostic gospels which casts a whole new light on the beginnings of Christianity and its place in the spiritual history of mankind. The story of Saint Mary Magdalene is a fascinating one if only for the light it sheds on the extreme misogyny of the clergy of the established churches, particularly those of the Roman rite. Far from being the 'penitent whore', Mary Magdalene was probably the closest person to Jesus, and showed exceptional spiritual development. Her depiction by the church as a 'fallen woman' has had a huge effect on the status of women over the centuries, and it is only now that a new appraisal of her role is becoming apparent. Jean-Yves Leloup's commentary is masterly, and clarifies many otherwise puzzling inconsistencies in the synoptic gospels. For anyone seeking the truth about early Christianity, this book is a must.
