FASCINATING NOVEL EXPLORES JESUS AND MARY’S CONTROVERSIAL BOND THROUGH THE LENSES OF CULTURAL, SOCIAL, POLITICAL AND HISTORICAL CONTEXTS. Mary Magdalene and Jesus of Nazareth’s mysterious, legendary connection can only be realized by revisiting their story through its Greco-Roman, Mediterranean cultural context. Early theologians censored details about theater, literature, dress, cuisine, wedding rituals, glass manufacturing, silk trade, politics and architecture of Mary Magdalene’s time when they did not fit dogma and doctrine. Cultural Historian Carol Aldenhoven McKay retrieves these lost frameworks as the story line follows McKay’s meticulous reconstruction of a formerly forgotten way of life. Blood and Silk: The Hidden Love Story of Mary Magdalene and Jesus of Nazareth is a novel fifteen years in the making.

Although Hungarian ballads were first collected about a hundred years before this book was first published in 1967, they have remained largely unknown to Western scholars. This was the first comprehensive study of the Hungarian material in any major European language. Dr Leader provides an analytic description and full English text of the main Hungarian classical ballads with their published versions. She examines their characteristics, analyses their themes, motifs and underlying folk beliefs, and relates them to ballads of other countries, particularly England and Scotland. This pioneer work suggested fresh interpretations and solutions to the problems of Hungarian ballad scholarship and enlarged the study of international ballads by making the Magyar material available in translation. It had repercussions on a wide range of folklore studies and on the comparative study of European literatures, to which the oral narrative traditions serve as important groundwork.
