The Passion of Mary Magdalen

Monkfish Book Publishing Company, 2006

We find Maeve naked on a slave block in the heart of the Roman forum where she is snatched up by an aristocratic madam. After adventures in Rome, which include intrigue at the Temple of Whores and Adulterers that nearly gets her crucified, Maeve wins her freedom and goes to Galilee where she opens her own holy whore house, the site of her reunion with her long-lost beloved. In her highly unorthodox way, she shares Jesus’s ministry and braves the mysteries of death and resurrection.

 

What Readers Say:
“Magdalene fans are in for more surprises in Cunningham’s classy, sexy novel…this will be snapped up by Magdalene fans as well as Celtophiles, feminists, and lovers of a good yarn—controversial.” –Booklist starred review
