The Mystery Of Mary Magdalene

The History Channel December 24, 2016

Melvyn Bragg sets out to unravel the many questions surrounding one of the Bible's most enigmatic and controversial figures. In the gospel accounts, Mary Magdalene plays a central role in the Easter story. She is there at the cross when Jesus is crucified and she is the key witness to the resurrection. So why do so many people believe that Mary Magdalene was the seductive prostitute redeemed by Christ, despite there being no reference to it in the Bible? This compelling documentary uncovers the real story behind Mary Magdalene's legendary status, from her vital role in the first centuries of Christianity to her portrayal in Jesus Christ Superstar and The Da Vinci Code.
