Talk about Mary Through the Centuries: Her Place in the History of Culture


Kulabandis
Scholar Jaroslav Pelikan of Yale University once again writes a powerful historical and theological book, this time devoted to Mary, the Theotokos. He reveals the controversies between the Latin West (Roman Catholicism), the Eastern Church (Eastern Orthodoxy) and the Protestant movements and their many divergent views. He takes great care to present the facts, but also reveals the rumors and mystery of history, as well as history's strengths and weaknesses.

Regardless of one's theological perspective on Mary and her place in the Christian life, this is must reading for anyone interested in doctrinal development throughout Christian history. His chapter on the "second Eve" is clear, concise, yet thorough and accessible to both those who are lay people and academics. This chapter naturally follows into the doctrine of the Theotokos and its importance in Marian doctrine; but more importantly, though not always stated, its importance in the doctrine of Christ. Pelikan shows its development, again, concisely and clearly.

Also, very interestingly, Pelikan takes the reader to a not very well known area by many Western Christians and that is the early place Mary held in Islamic cultures and how the Quran pictures her in extremely warming language that it rivals most material elsewhere found in that text.

He does not shy away from the controversial aspects of Mariology as well, to include the bodily assumption, the apparitions, and the Immaculate Conception. He shows how the doctrines developed and the problems each one caused between Protestants and Orthodox Christians. Agreements and differences are discussed without making this book into an apologetic for one view or the other (not that apologetic material is wrong, but would have greatly side tracked this text).

This is just another outstanding work of which I have had the pleasure to read.

As a Protestant convert to Orthodox Christianity I had the usual misgivings regarding the elevated role of Mary in the Orthodox and Catholic Churches. This book gives a thorough and scholarly approach to how marionology developed over the centuries in both the eastern and western traditions of the church. It was very helpful in enabling me to better appreciate why there is such a veneration of Mary even though there is not much biblical revelation about her. The most surprising thing to me was the Muslim connection to Mary. This book will certainly fill in your knowledge and appreciation for Mary and how she developed into such an icon of the church.

Book Review:
Mary Through the Centuries: Her Place in the History of Culture
Jaroslav Pelikan

During his final year of teaching history at Yale University, Jaroslav Pelikan composed Mary Through the Centuries: Her Place in the History of Culture, a comprehensive survey of the cultural and doctrinal influences of Mary, the mother of Jesus, upon the West. In a succinct and eloquent account, Pelikan invites the reader to consider the impact of this religious figure upon the landscape of the Western religious and cultural ideologies. From the development of orthodox Christianity during the third and fourth centuries until the postmodern search for identity during the twentieth century, myths, doctrines, and devotions about Mary have captured the interest and imagination of scholars, religious leaders, and the populous alike. He writes: "the doctrine of Mary proved to be one of the most important places to observe and test the processes by which great ideas have developed" (p. 200). For the Christianize West, Pelikan traces the relationship of the doctrine of the Incarnation to the unfolding of the legacy of Mary as the Virgin Mother of God, the Immaculate Conception, and the Eternal Feminine whose very body was assumed into heaven. As his documentation proves, Christianity's interpretation of Mary has influenced almost every aspect of Western religious history.
Pelikan's research reveals the breadth of his knowledge not only about the religious and cultural history of Mary, but also his expansive awareness of the multifaceted influences that impacted the construction of the Western religious milieu. He leaves few stones unturned, few doors unopened, and few texts uncited. Being a survey encompassing over two thousand years of history, he rarely delves deeply into exegetical research; yet, with his mastery of the English language, he is able to pack each sentence with an overwhelming amount of information. This would be an excellent introduction for the undergraduate or master's level college student, while serving as a guidepost for doctoral students in their search for pivotal documents relating to the development of the doctrine of the Incarnation.

Last two chapters more apologetic than the first part of the book. Author has an amazing command of the theological issues throughout the centuries which really show how her cultus has developed.
Hystana
Pelikan is certainly a scholar, here exhibiting the sweep of some theology, music, poetry and art concerning the Mother of Christ.

He peels back the layers of cultural time, revealing that the view of Mary has changed over generations and differently in the East and West quadrants of Christianity. Also interesting was the exploration into the Quran's view. He touches at points on the Protestant and Reformed view.

What this reviewer found lacking was any real view of correct exegesis of the texts, which are continually smothered with cultural interpretations and philosophical musings about the topic. He at times seems fair of anaylsis, but tends to lean towards traditional buildup and expansion of tangental elements with suspect origins.

All this said, this is valuable exploration and bibliographic resource for exploration into a topic which sometimes gets left out, but musn't. Fine art plates included and commented on as well.
