Mary Magdalene is known from the Gospels as the first one to discover the Christ at his tomb after resurrection. But her myth is more complex and intricated with religious (and art) history. Either confused with another Mary, repentant and with ambivalent ointment of Jesus's feet, thus highlighting a possibly sexual behavior. Or, on the other end of the spectrum, a possible Gospel writer and disciple whose work was deliberately ignored at times of male domination in the Christian religion. Whatever is the truth, her character is highly symbolic for the image and role of women in Christian religions.
