Product Description

Devoting different sections of the book to each of the various roles Mary has assumed -Virgin, Queen, Bride, Mother, Intercessor- and drawing on official dogma, folk legend, art, history, literature and psychology, Marina Warner shows how the figure of Mary has shaped and been shaped by changing social and historical circumstances from the first century to the present day, and why, for all their beauty and power the legends of Virgin Mary have condemned real women to perpetual inferiority.
