A landmark work in feminist cultural and Christian Testament studies, Schaberg makes a compelling case for Mary of Magdala's theological resurrection. The use of the writings of Virginia Woolf as a counterpart to the major theme of the book - Mary Magdalene - in Scripture and tradition, pioneers a new interpretative approach at the study of Christian origins.
