Learning - The pioneer
According to La Sainte Baume sanctuary, ”this woman is one whom Christ has cast out seven devils. Once purified, the scholar became with the Twelve and some other women, disciple of Jesus Christ. He asked her to announce to his apostles that he had risen, that is why St. Mary Magdalene is called « Apostle of the Apostles »… According to the legend, shortly afterwards, Mary Magdalene embarked with her brother Lazarus and her sister Martha. She arrived in the place now called Saintes Maries de la Mer” in... France.
"Did you know Mary Magdalene was a scholar? Recent research of Coptic texts, including the Gospel of Mary, assert that she was a reflective, wise spiritualist." (**Nina's notes)
