BBCL 520 - Mary Magdalene Understood

1.5 credits
Who was Mary Magdalene? How and why has she been such a major figure of speculation, fascination, and theological debate in the western imagination? How has she been understood in the eastern Christian tradition? Students in this short course work through the book Mary Magdalene Understood (Bloomsbury, 2006) as a way to explore the power, politics, and wisdom of the Mary Magdalene’s tradition. Putting the results of feminist biblical scholarship in conversation with personal self-reflection, this course enhances knowledge of Mary’s tradition and invites students to deepen their spiritual and social understandings of the interplay of gender, sexuality, religion, and the pursuit of what is true and good in the Christian tradition and beyond.  Pass/Fail. All masters levels; no PhD or DMin levels.
