Something about Mary

In the south of France, particularly in the Languedoc, Mary Magdalene holds a central place in religious life. Much in contrast with the image that is in the new testa-ment and therewith in popular belief, she takes up the place normally associated with Mary, the mother of Jesus. Saunière devoted his church and much of his estate to Mary Magdalene and certainly wasn’t alone in doing so. In their 1982 book Holy Blood and the Holy Grail, three British writers presented their hypothesis that Mary Magdalene the wife of Jesus, the mother of their children and the sister of Lazarus, at who’s house Jesus was laid to rest after he had been salvaged from the cross by Joseph of Arimathea. It is claimed by many researchers and writers today that this story is interwoven with the enigma and building projects of Abbé Bérenger Saunière in Rennes-le-Château.

  1. Many syncretistic religions formed gnosticism. Gnosticism was rivaling against Christianity and gnosticism held itself better religion as Christianity was. Word gnosticism comes from Greek word gnosis, which means knowledge. Gnosticism had various effects, for instance, some Gnostics taught that divinity can be achieved through unity of the man and woman. This thought led some Gnostics to reach for divinity through sexual intercourse between the man and woman. There existed also some Gnostics, who abstained from sexual intercourse. When we know the fact that Gnostics held Christians as their enemies and that Gnostics held themselves better as Christians and that Gnostics wanted to show in every way that Gnosticism was better as Christianity, so Gnostics made so called gnostic gospels were they twisted, slandered and misrepresented the real gospels. Gnostics went so far in this misrepresent that they wrote “new gospels” by faking the real gospels. In these faked gospels Gnostics wrote that Jesus Christ was an ordinary man who has a sexual relationship with Mary Magdalene.

  2. Very interesting analysis.However the
    theory that the gnostic gospels are
    later versions of a misrepresented truth,is a fallacy.The gnostic gospels
    actually predate the gospels from the
    Bible,the Gospel of Thomas for example.It is believed that these earlier more mystical versions perhaps relate the true message of
    Christ,closer than the versions bearing the endorsement of the
    Council of Nicea.
