Challenges two common modern positions on past treatments of women within the Christian tradition, that sexual equality is already present in the New Testament and that attitudes in the later Church, typified by Mary Magdalene as the representative sinner, represented a decline. In place of the former an alternative approach to the justification of sexual equality is canvassed, while many positive features in the western composite figure of Mary Magdalene are noted.
