An in-depth investigation of the facts and mythology surrounding the historical Mary Magdalene? Reveals new details about the life of the beloved of Jesus? Illustrated with rare and unusual imagery depicting Mary's central role in Christianity? Includes 60-minute CD of author discussing "The Greatest Story Never Told"? By the author of the bestselling The Woman with the Alabaster JarThe controversy surrounding Mary Magdalene and her relationship to Jesus has gained widespread international interest since the publication of Dan Brown's novel "The Da Vinci Code, "which specifically cites Margaret Starbird's earlier works as a significant source. In "Mary Magdalene, Bride in Exile "Starbird examines the many faces of Mary Magdalene, from the historical woman who walked with Jesus in the villages of Judea to the mythic and symbolic Magdalene who is the archetype of the Sacred Feminine. Starbird reveals exciting new information about the woman who was the most intimate companion of Jesus and offers historical evidence that Mary was Jesus? forgotten bride.Expanding on the discussion of medieval art and lore introduced in her bestselling book "The Woman with the Alabaster Jar," Starbird sifts through the layers of misidentification under which the story of the Lost Bride of Christ has been buried to reveal the slandered woman and the ?exiled? feminine principle. She establishes the identity of the historical female disciple who was the favored first witness of the Resurrection and provides an interpretation of Mary's true role based on prophecy from the Hebrew scriptures and the testimony of the canonical gospels of Christianity. Balancing scholarly research with theological reflection, she takes readers deeper into the story and mythology of how Magdalene as the Bride embodies the soul's own journey in its eternal quest for reunion with the Divine.
