9780141019352: Mother of God: A History of the Virgin Mary

Mary, the mother of Jesus, is one of the most powerful, influential and complex of all religious figures. The focus for women, the inspiration of faith, the subject of innumerable paintings, sculptures, pieces of music and churches, Mary is so entangled in our world that it is impossible to conceive of the history of Western culture and religion without her. Mother of God is the story of that presence and a book that raises profound questions about the human experience.

Review:

Miri Rubin [is] one of the most interesting and original of British medieval historians ... There is room for a whole book on this subject and Rubin is uniquely equipped to write it ... a capacious and vastly learned book ... a treasury (Rowan Williams Financial Times )

a wonderfully illuminating history of the mother of Jesus ( Telegraph )

A remarkable, ambitious and wide-ranging account ... sympathetic and eloquent (Melanie McDonagh Evening Standard )

Review:

`Mother of God is a breathtaking work of scholarship, surely the finest account of Mary's impact on world culture from biblical up to modern times. Miri Rubin captures Mary's profound appeal--as mother and virgin, chaste and fertile, chosen and modest, life-giver and mourner--and as an inspiration to countless artists, writers, and believers. It's a remarkable achievement by one of the most gifted historians at work today.'
