Description
Information
This book looks at the gospels, noting the slight allusions to Mary, and the curious confusions between the two women of that name. It points out the falsities, fables and manifest fabrications that have shaped mariolatry. It explores the cult in all its ramifications peeling aside each successive accretion of doctrine and devotion in order to examine its moral, social and emotional implications, without underrating the realities of faith.
