Mary Magdalene as an Apostle of Gnosis

Lecture no. 15 from the course: Gnosticism: From Nag Hammadi to the Gospel of Judas

Mary Magdalene as an Apostle of Gnosis

Taught by Professor David Brakke | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

The figure of Mary Magdalene appears prominently in Valentinian and other so-called “heretical” writings. In assessing her significance within these traditions, contrast her portrayal in the canonical gospels with the non-canonical Gospel According to Mary, which reveals key evidence regarding the role of women in early Christianity and the nature of religious authority.
