Mary Magdalene is not mentioned often in the gospels, but she does appear at key moments and has become an important figure for those interested in the role of women in early Christianity as well as in Jesus’ ministry. She accompanied Jesus throughout his travels and was a witness to his death - which, according to Mark, was a requirement to truly understand Jesus' nature. She was a witness to the empty tomb and was instructed by Jesus to carry the news to the other disciples.
