The night before my wedding I had a dream about Mary Magdalene I was sleeping over at the home of one of my bridesmaids a devout Catholic and one of my best friendsWhen I woke up in the morning I saw this book on a bookshelf I hadn t seen the night before I told her my story of synchronicity and she told me that her spiritual director has said to her that when you see that beam of light you should step into it So I borrowed the book It s a cultural history book masuerading as an art history book It is illustrated with depictions of La Magdalene from medieval times to the nearly present I was especially interested in the way that artists co opted ie exploited her as a way to create erotic art during a time of censorship I get it but it saddens me that her true story is obscured and subverted by art that gets the whole message completely backwards The message to which I refer That Mary Magdalene was freed by Jesus from exploitation by menI was most excited by the chapter describing ministries to prostitutes and sex slaves in Europe that were named for Magdalene and took her as patron saintAs for the writing you get what you pay for it s an academic book and reads as such You wouldn t mistake it for pop lit but it s accessible and mostly steers clear of jargon and academese I suspect art history writing in general is less egregious than lit crit which I say with love as a literary critictheoristSadly though the book goes off the rails at the end when the author tries to conclude with a thesis she hasn t earned in any way It read as though she had turned in her final draft and the editor was like Good good but what is the point So she tacked on a conclusion that she wished she had brought up before but it s already the deadline and oh well who is going to argue when the point is clearly just that people made art about Mary Magdalene in ways that reflected themselves than her See there s your ending What does ordaining women have to do with what I just read pray tellThis book would have only gotten 3 stars were it not for the fact that when I stepped into that beam it led me all the way into the church and a deeper relationship with God Mysterious ways indeed Очаг на башне refer That Mary Magdalene was freed by Jesus from exploitation by menI was most excited by the chapter describing ministries to prostitutes and sex slaves in Europe that were named for Magdalene and took her as patron saintAs for the writing you get what you pay for it s an academic book and Druids A History reads as such You wouldn t mistake it for pop lit but it s accessible and mostly steers clear of jargon and academese I suspect art history writing in general is less egregious than lit crit which I say with love as a literary critictheoristSadly though the book goes off the The Mechanics' Institute Review: Issue 5 rails at the end when the author tries to conclude with a thesis she hasn t earned in any way It White Nights read as though she had turned in her final draft and the editor was like Good good but what is the point So she tacked on a conclusion that she wished she had brought up before but it s already the deadline and oh well who is going to argue when the point is clearly just that people made art about Mary Magdalene in ways that Sammy Keyes and the Cold Hard Cash Sammy Keyes reflected themselves than her See there s your ending What does ordaining women have to do with what I just The Weight of Ink read pray tellThis book would have only gotten 3 stars were it not for the fact that when I stepped into that beam it led me all the way into the church and a deeper The Unicorn in the Barn relationship with God Mysterious ways indeed
