Mary In The Old Testament And Some Other Issues

Michael Brown discussed the Roman Catholic view of Mary on his radio program earlier this week. There's a thread on the subject at one of his web sites, and a lot of issues have come up there: alleged Marian typology in the Old Testament, her supposed perpetual virginity, whether she was a sinner, and whether she should be called Mother of God, for example. Michael Brown has been posting there, and so have several other people, including me.

Here's an index that links to some Triablogue posts on issues related to Mary.


  1. "Catholics believe that Mary is... herself sinless and virgin born."

    Where did that one come from?

  2. Surely it is a slip of the tongue for "immaculately conceived." (whereas only Christ was immaculately conceived)
