Jane Schaberg has died
Kathy Schiffer's blog on Patheos, that Jane Schaberg has died. Jane Schaberg was Professor of Religious Studies and Women's Studies at the University of Detroit Mercy and is most well known for her controversial but thought-provoking The Illegitimacy of Jesus which recently (2006) celebrated its twentieth anniversary with a new edition. She has also published extensively on Mary Magdalene, including The Resurrection of Mary Magdalene: Legends, Apocrypha, and the Christian Testament. Her passing is a great loss.
