Young Mary of Nazareth

Categories: , Tags: , ,


Recounts the life of the Virgin Mary, from her own birth through her early years and education at the Temple, to the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem.

Mayer draws on apocryphal material and her own psychological insights as well as Scripture for her account of Mary’s conception, birth, education, betrothal, and, finally, the birth of her son. Some touches of the miraculous gild the narrative, but for the most part the author focuses on Mary’s qualities of character-in particular, her courage.

Beautifully written, taking the oral tradition and writings of the Church and skillfully weaving a narrative on Our Lady’s life.

*There a one line about Our Lady being ‘pale and in pain’ which doesn’t fit with Catholic Tradition.
