Mary Magdalene, Lost Goddess, Lost Gospels, by Jan McDonald. From the day she landed in Provence, Mary Magdalene became beloved by the people of the Languedoc area. Later, churches, cathedrals and shrines were built all over France. What is happening to make her equally popular now, 2,000 years later, throughout the world? In an early translation and commentary on the Gospel of Mary Magdalene, she shows the way for the soul's ascension. Her current significance marks the return of the Goddess to her rightful place in Christianity in the New Age.
