Zoom-Mary Magdalene: Fact and Fiction-what would Snopes say?
With Kathleen Kichline
May 30, 2020
In the second century, Hippolytus of Rome first conferred upon her the exalted title, “Apostle to the Apostles.” Four centuries later she was designated the Patron Saint of Prostitutes. Which is she? Fact or fiction, saint or sinner, the object of veneration or vilification? We certainly know of her but do we know her? Here’s our chance to at least sort through some of her story. We’ll look to scripture, history, apocryphal texts, literature and art to enhance our understanding of her story and of her.
BONUS: For those who cannot make a Saturday Zoom, Kathleen will repeat the session on Monday, June 1st, 9:30 to 11:30 PDT if we get a minimum sign-up of five or more.
Kathleen MacInnis Kichline, M.Div., created a full series of Sisters in Tradition, which she led over three years at St. Thomas More Parish, Lynnwood, Washington. A follow up to her bible study, Sisters in Scripture, this series brings to life the stories of the foremothers of faith, accessing their own words and works. After many years of active parish ministry, Kathleen now serves as adjunct faculty at Seattle University and leads retreats both in person and online.
