The Life and Repentance of Mary Magdalene slated

By Staff | Apr 4, 2017

Jason Grant McKahan, Chair of Communication and New Media, and Betty Ellzey, Chair of the Department of English and Modern Language, will present research entitled “The Life and Repentance of Mary Magdalene.”

This talk will take place on Monday at 4 p.m. in the Byrd Center for Congressional History and Education Auditorium.

The Life and Repentance of Mary Magdalene, written by a former Franciscan friar in 1550, near the beginning of the Reformation in England, differs radically from the medieval depictions of Mary Magdalene. Jason McKahan and Betty Ellzey made a film of the play in 2016, using actors from the Rude Mechanicals and Digital Filmmaking students in Communication.
