Geoffrey Ashe's book "The Virgin" Dec 23 2012
By Tterrence Saunders - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A very learned essay if quite unorthodox one on the rise of the veneration of Our Lady in and outside the Christian Church. I'd recommend it to all denominations,Roman Catholic,Anglican,Protestant and Eastern orthodox alike.
Full of historical facts and reference as well as interesting speculation.I have a copy both for myself and my sister.
An exciting book.
