, online: “Christianity, Mary Magdalene and the modern”
. From the page that comes up, just click on the link to listen to the latest installment of the series, or scroll down and click on the link to listen to the series.
In this episode of this series, we are reminded of Mary Magdalene's role as the primary witness of the resurrection. Experts discuss how that role was diminished, and the effect that would have on all women in Christianity. This is a fascinating discussion, perhaps the best of the four parts of the series. Participants take on issues ranging from The Da Vinci Code
to feminism in an attempt to make sense of a subject with such broad scope. The final word in the show comes from Susan Haskins.
