Today is the feast day of Mary Magdalen, also called Mary of Magdala. The Maeve Chronicles by Elizabeth Cunningham is a series of award-winning novels featuring a feisty Celtic Magdalen, who is no one’s disciple. I have read and recommend these novels, and anything by Elizabeth Cunningham. Each volume can stand alone and the books can be read in any order. For those who like to read chronologically: Magdalen Rising; The Passion of Mary Magdalen; Bright Dark Madonna; Red-Robed Priestess. http://elizabethcunninghamwrites.com/books
Read Cunningham’s latest writing on Mary Magdalen, a guest post appearing today on the feminismandreligion.com blog, titled Did You Have to Make Her a Prostitute? And if you want to hear Cunningham’s voice singing the musical essence of the Maeve Chronicles, you can listen to samples of her blues, bluegrass, gospel, and jazz improvisation here.
As Magdalas of the planet, let us rise and reclaim our magnificent, self-defined, female selves! Thank you, Elizabeth Cunningham.
