This volume, on the cult of the Theotokos (Virgin Mary) in Byzantium, focuses on textual and historical aspects of the subject, thus complementing previous work which has centered more on the cult of images of the Mother of God. This international cast of scholars, consider the development and transformation of the cult from approximately the fourth through the twelfth centuries. The aim of this volume is to build on recent work on the cult of the Virgin Mary in Byzantium and to explore new areas of study. The rationale is critical and historical, using literary, artistic, and archaeological sources to evaluate her role in the development of the Byzantine understanding of the ways in which God interacts with creation by means of icons, relics and the Theotokos.

Scripture & the Mystery of the Mother of God will introduce you more deeply to Mary, the Mother of God, as your mother. Nine well-known Catholics, including Scott and Kimberly Hahn, Jeff Cavins, Tim Gray, and Leon Suprenant—open the pages of God’s family album (the Bible) to provide compelling explanations of Mary’s role in salvation history and in our daily lives as Christians. The result is a moving tribute and convincing testimony that demolishes common misconceptions about Catholic teaching on Mary. Includes material from Scott Hahn on the Luminous Mysteries and the biblical basis of the Marian Dogmas. You’ll learn why the Catholic Church teaches that Mary was immaculately conceived, remained always a virgin, and was assumed body and soul into heaven. You’ll understand how Mary is the fulfillment of the Old Testament images. Most of all, you’ll discover what it means to be a child of Mary in the Church. This book is one of four books in the Catholic for a Reason Series. Authors: Scott Hahn, Curtis A. Martin, Curtis J. Mitch, Tim Gray, Edward P. Sri, Leon J. Suprenant, Kimberly Hahn, Sean Innerst, and Jeff Cavins. Foreword by Bishop James S. Sullivan. About the Catholic for a Reason Series: This benchmark series brings together the expert knowledge and personal insight of today’s top Catholic apologists on topics at the heart of the Catholic faith. Whether you’re a non-Catholic who wants to learn about the Church’s teaching, or a Catholic who wants to become a more articulate defender of the faith, the Catholic for a Reason series is for you.

Despite the continued fascination with the Virgin Mary in modern and contemporary times, very little of the resulting scholarship on this topic extends to Russia. Russia's Mary, however, who is virtually unknown in the West, has long played a formative role in Russian society and culture. Framing Mary introduces readers to the cultural life of Mary from the seventeenth century to the post-Soviet era. It examines a broad spectrum of engagements among a variety of people--pilgrims and poets, clergy and laity, politicians and political activists--and the woman they knew as the Bogoroditsa. In this collection of well-integrated and illuminating essays, leading scholars of imperial, Soviet, and post-Soviet Russia trace Mary's irrepressible pull and inexhaustible promise from multiple disciplinary perspectives. Focusing in particular on the ways in which both visual and narrative images of Mary frame perceptions of Russian and Soviet space and inform discourse about women and motherhood, these essays explore Mary's rich and complex role in Russia's religion, philosophy, history, politics, literature, and art. Framing Mary will appeal to Russian studies scholars, historians, and general readers interested in religion and Russian culture.

Mary the Mother of Jesus was a humble servant of the Lord during her life time. But after her death through a long process of myth making through the traditions of the Church she was made the Mother of God worthy of highest adoration from the devotees. This is dangerous and against the doctrines of the Bible and the will of God.

There is only one source of miracles in this World, this is the Our Lord, Who by His love sends us His grace and mercy.Thus, St. Theophan the Recluse writes: "The power is not in the icons, or in the people turning to them, but in the mercy of God."During prayer, we open our hearts before Lord, and in response, God sends us His saving grace, healing and transfiguring us internally. Christianity highly values human nature..Miraculous icons with Virgin Mary's image show many miracles because God's grace was and will be in all His images. Blessed Virgin Mary spends more time on the earth than in the sky. It invisibly is with suffering, helping us with misfortunes. In this book, you will see original pictures of the Mother of Jesus and also the description of miraculous icons. .
