Product Description


This volume has taken up the challenge not only of listing and commenting on movies about Mary, the Mother of Jesus, but offers solid biblical and theological contexts for the key presentations of Mary on screen, mostly from the Gospel narratives but also from the long traditions of tales about Mary (including from the Koran) and the centuries of apparition stories. The author uses meticulous scholarship in examining the often quite different ways in which Mary episodes have been portrayed for more than a century of filmmaking.--Peter Malone, SIGNIS, The World Catholic Association for Communication

This is a thorough and engaging study of the portrayal of the Virgin Mary in film, understanding its subject in relation to both religious and secular contexts. It should be read by anyone interested in gender or religion in film, and equally by anyone concerned with the reception of religion in modernity; and will become a staple in the reading lists for my own students.--Sarah Boss, Director, UK Centre for Marian Studies

About the Author

Catherine O'Brien is senior lecturer in film studies and French at Kingston University in the U.K. She has published widely on the intersections between Marian theology and secular culture.
