Mary Magdalene embodied both the saintly and the profane, allowing medieval theologians and authors an unparalleled opportunity to express their conflicting attitudes towards women. This detailed study focuses on an early 16th-century drama from East Anglia, the so-called Digby Mary Magdalene , in order to explore the religious culture of late medieval England as a whole. Coletti adopts a number of approaches, but the emphasis is on female contributions to salvation history' and the role of that most popular of literary genres, drama and the theatre. Coletti discusses examples of holy women in East Anglia, the relationship between religious and lay values and theatre, and the Digby play's treatment of the male Christ and the fleshliness' of Mary Magdalene.
