    How did Mary, about whom so little is written in the gospels, become a global icon? To answer that question, Rubin presents a history of the ideas, practices and images that developed around the figure of the Virgin Mary, from the earliest years of Christianity up to around 1600. Exploring a wide range of sources - visual arts, music, literature, popular tales and theology - the study offers an historical understanding of the emergence of Mary and her profound meaning within different Christian cultures.
