Product description


"A sparky and erudite book, packed with information and written with passion" (Julia O'Faolain Times Literary Supplement)

"A book full of delights, anecdotes, observations; it exhibits a wealth of scholarship, and a passion and charm which are hard to resist" (Jackie Wullschlager Financial Times)

"Haskins' analysis of the Magdalen myth is a rich and scholarly detective story, an unveiling which is at the same time a revelation. This is an intelligent book, which blends a sensitive and critical knowledge of art with theology and history. It is written with style and a delightful mocking wit, and is mercifully free of tediously inconclusive arguments about sex and gender" (Angela Tilby Church Times)

"The strengths of Mary Magdalen are real and obvious. It has a bold sweep. It takes an icon of faith and sexuality and trails it through ideas and hypocrisies, through travesties and beautiful representations on canvas and in bronze" (Eavan Boland Observer)

Book Description

"The best book ever written about Mary Magdalen, published now to take advantage of the fascination with her engendered by THE DA VINCI CODE."
