Who was Mary Magdalene? She has been portrayed as a prostitute, a devoted follower, an important apostle, a mystic, and even possibly Jesus’ wife who bore his children. Often her portrayal was shaped by the religious struggles of their times and says more about the person shaping the narrative than revealing truth.
Come and be introduced the the real Mary Magdalene by Dr Amy Slagle. Dr. Slagle is an Associate Professor of Religion in the School of Humanities at University of Southern Mississippi. She earned her PhD in religious studies from the University of Pittsburgh. Her expertise is in Eastern Orthodoxy, religious conversion, sacred arts/material culture, afterlife beliefs, and modern occultism. Her work includes the book The Eastern Church in the Spiritual Marketplace: American Conversions to Orthodox Christianity (Northern Illinois University Press, 2011) and several articles. She is currently teaching a 5-week course through the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) about the lost gospels and early Christianity.
