Channel: Mysteries of Mary Magdelene
Discover how and why the early Christian church was able to reinvent one of the most mysterious women in history.
I decided to watch this documentary about this historical figure in Christianity as part of a recommendation from my friend, and therefore, I had very little knowledge of this person named Mary Magdalene at the start. Taking into consideration that I was also not an active believer of Christianity, this documentary was rather difficult to grasp, for it excluded the basic pieces of information that was required for those who were as not religious. The detailed concept of this mysterious woman, I think, was better aimed towards viewers with a thorough Christian background.
Despite some of the information from this documentary that was more difficult to understand, I learned that Mary Magdelene had an important, but vague role in the New Testament as I saw from the uncertainty and indefiniteness of the information that was being reported by the researchers. They too, seemed not to have much firm knowledge of this figure due to her varying existence. However, by the end of the documentary, I was able grasp a brief insight on Mary Magdalene's connection with Christianity and Jesus.
