Mary Magdalene's vision of a risen Jesus was the spark that ignited the flame of Christianity. In the gospels of the New Testament, as the prime witness to the resurrection, it is she who convinces the male disciples that their leader has returned from the dead. That message began the transformation of the Jesus Movement from a minor Jewish sect into a new world faith. Without her there may never have been a Christianity.
Yet strangely, rather than celebrate her as a founder of their faith, the gospels say almost nothing about her, the early Christian church branded her a whore and western art and literature have constantly reinvented her down the centuries. She remains one of the most mysterious women in history.
Information about her in the official gospels is restricted to just a few lines claiming that she was once possessed by demons, was at the head of a group of women who came from Galilee and helped support Jesus out of her means. This program asks whether the demons could possibly refer to Mary's mental state. Was she perhaps a schizophrenic or an epileptic? And what does that say about her reliability as a witness to the resurrection? And how rich would she have needed to have been to provide financial aid to Jesus and his followers?
Mary Magdalene's very name is mysterious. In first century Palestine neither men nor women had surnames. Women were usually identified by their relationship to a man either as wife, mother or daughter. Magdalene is not a known name. Could it be a clue to where she came from and therefore shed light on who she really was?
We discover how and why the early Christian church was able to hide Mary's true identity and construct a whole new image for her as a former prostitute. An image so powerful that it effectively obscured the true Mary for 1400 years. And in a remarkable series of Lost Gospels deemed heretical by the early church and omitted from the bible we find fresh evidence of Mary Magdalene's importance in the Jesus Movement.
This program draws together a picture of the real Mary Magdalene. Was she the bad girl of the gospels or the wife of Jesus, perhaps even the mother of his child? Or do all the conspiracy theories hide an even greater truth? Of Mary Magdalene as the leader of the early church.
