    Mary Magdalene, Jesus Christ’s wife or the prostitute he renewed? A plethora of questions have been raised about the role Mary Magdalene played in Jesus’ life. When the movie The Da Vinci Code was released, controversy over this topic spread like wildfire. The plot of The Da Vinci Code suggested that there was a hidden blood line, created by none other than Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene.

    The painting that I chose from the gallery was The Penitent Magdalene, created by Flemish artist Abraham Janssens around the year 1620. I really liked this painting and was drawn towards it because the woman represented in it looks very sorrowful, upset, and perhaps even a little lonely, tear mark clearly visible by her eyes.
