Perhaps not the biblical figure of scholarships has been the subject of more controversy and debate than Mary MagdaleneAlso known as Miriam of Magdala, Mary of Magdala was considered by the apostle John to be the founder of Christianity, because she was the first witness of the ResurrectionIn most theological studies, it has been portrayed as a reform of the prostitute, the redeemed sinner who illustrates Christ’s mercyToday, the reader can reflect on his role in the gospel of Philip, Thomas, Peter, and Bartholomew-the collection of the so-called Gnostic gospels rejected by the early Christian churchMary’s own gospel is among these, but until now it has remained unknown to the general publicOrthodox theologian Jean-Yves Leloup translation of the Gospel of Mary, Coptic and his complete and profound commentary on this text are presented here for the first time in EnglishThe text of the gospel and spiritual exegesis of Leloup together reveal unique teachings that emphasize the eminence of the divine feminine and the constant love of nature plus the dualistic and ascetical interpretations of Christianity presented elsewhereWhat emerges from this important source of text and commentary is a renewal of the sacred of the feminine in the Western spiritual tradition and a new vision of Christian thought and faith throughout the world.
