Well, I'm new here. I will admit, I have become more interested in Mary Magdalene because of the da Vinci Code. I thought it was an amazing book. I always thought there was something weird going on with the whole "Mary Magdalene was a whore" thing, and I have thought even longer that Jesus was just a regular guy, who ate, slept, drank, burped, and *gasp* may have even had sex. ^_^

Anyway, I've been reading "Holy Blood, Holy Grail," and have just been sucked into the whole thing. I want to do more research on Mary Magdalene. I'm very ok with debunking the church's claim that she was a prostitute, because it's about time there was an important, respected woman in Christianity. (I'm not exactly a feminist, but I am pagan. ^_~)

Glad to be here. ^_^

Check out Susan Haskin's book Mary Magdalen: Myth and Metaphor, you might also enjoy Margaret Starbird's The Woman with the Alabaster Jar.
Thank you! My mom has the second one, so I'll borrow it from her. ^_^
Also, "Mary Magdalene" by Lynn Pickett ( I think- might be Pickert) debunks a lot of the theories in Da Vinci Code, but has some other interesting ones.

Cool, I'm open for anything. Thanks.
