Mary Magdalene was a disciple of Jesus and witness to His resurrection. Her epithet Magdalene means "of Magdala", a fishing village on the Sea of Galilee. She is mentioned briefly in the four canonical Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John), as a woman "out of whom [Jesus] had cast seven demons". Among the varying accounts in the Gospels, Mary Magdalene is the constant as witness to Jesus' resurrection. In the Gospel of John, three Marys are mentioned at the cross--Mary, the mother of Jesus; Mary, Her sister and His aunt; and Mary Magdalene, three being a number long associated with women and the Goddesss.
