The Eternal Virgin

Was Mary a Virgin? Did she stay one? Was Mary the Mother also Mary Magdalene also Mary the sister of Lazarus? Did any of those Marys actually exist? Should Mary be taken literally or metaphorically? Is Mary another manifestation of all the other Virgin Queens mothers of saviors/gods? Is she a variation or extension of Isis, Hera, Juno, Aphrodite, Ishtar, Esther, Persephone, and other Mother Goddesses? Is she the Statue of Liberty?

Mary and the Widow's Son will write on this topic soon, but til then, here's the syllabus. Do your homework.

The Eternal Virgin is cross-posted on Sacred Fems.
