Mary Magdalene was for many centuries "the redeemed prostitute". But in historical terms, prostitute has been a term used in order to offend and devalue a woman who has had a leadership role, such in the case of temple priestesses. Some people believe Mary Magdalene was such a woman. In this painting her body is an offering of sacredness.
