Blog of the Grateful Bear

ramblings of a freelance panentheist {"all things are in God, and God is in all things"} . . . musings on Emergent spirituality, powerlifting, LGBTQueer issues, contemplative prayer, mysticism, cats, music, healing, and more. I like my coffee and my existentialism dark-roasted.

It appears to be a segment from a documentary called "Lost Gospels" that appeared on BBC Four. I did a web seach but could not find it available on DVD. Other segments from the documentary, including one on the Gospel of Thomas, are online at YouTube.

The Gospel of John also appears to come from the tradition of honouring women - maybe it was included in the canon as a sop to the losing side.

That said, Eastern Orthodoxy places more emphasis on the holiness of women - for example, with the Festival of the Myrrh-Bearing Women.

Mariamne Magdalene is wonderful.

It is indeed a BBC documentary called 'The Lost Gospels', and it is presented by Anglican priest peter Owen-Jones. I have a copy on VHS.
