This book, in Arabic language, is a collective work that gathers reflections on Mary from Muslim and Christian feminine voices. It is presented as a series of academic articles that join serious reflection with a spiritual dimension, and offers a multiple understanding founded on the Scripture, Bible and Qur’an, on symbolism and on the mystical and anthropological approach to the figure of Mary.
Abstract & Findings
The originality of this collective work is that it is the expression of a lebanese feminine literature in which is translated a dialogue of the arab woman, christian and muslam, with the scriptural and historical figure of Mary. For it is in their double academic and human quality that each author offers here her personal view of Mary.
