From the acclaimed historian and theologian, Jaroslav Pelikan (1923-2006), this book Mary Through the Centuries: Her Place in the History of Culture guides us through Scripture and the history of the Church to come to know the historic Mary, the Mother of Jesus, as she has been known through the ages. You will find that this broad sweep through Christian history will help you learn how critical Mary has always been for understanding Jesus Christ and the Christian way of holiness.
”The Virgin Mary has been more of an inspiration to more people than any other woman who ever lived.” (p.2)
