Last year, I was asked to be part of an academic panel presenting on the topic of Mary Magdalene at the 2015 Association for the Study of Women and Mythology Symposium. The other two women on the panel were in the midst of writing their dissertations on Mary Magdalene.  I was pleased and honored to be invited to be part of the discussion.

Not being an expert on Mary Magdalene, it was a fascinating research project for me. Here is the paper that I wrote and presented—Tears and Fragrance for the God’s Death and Resurrection: The Funerary Syncretism of Mary Magdalene with Isis.
