The twelve essays in this volume explore, through various approaches, not only the biblical portraits of Mary but also both 'the quest for the historical Mary' and the understandings of those portraits through the centuries. The expert contributors address such topics as the understandings of sexuality, the divine feminine, soteriology, first-century social history, christology, Protestant, Catholic, and Orthodox hermeneutics, ecumenical and interfaith relations, and the meaning of 'virginity'. This is Volume 10 of the Feminist Companions to the New Testament & Early Christian Literature series.

Review quote

"Together the essays provide a comprehensive analysis of Mary in history, Scripture, the Protoevangelium of James, traditional Mariology, and later interpretation. Each is replete with insights and thought-provoking ideas, and the collection as a whole provides a fascinating yet highly readable discussion of the place and significance of Mary in Christian thought." Helen K. Bond JSNTS Booklist, 2007 --Sanford Lakoff
