Mary/Maryam, Woman of faith for Christians and Muslims: Pertient perspectives for religious educators
Carroll, Sandra. (2012). Mary/Maryam, Woman of faith for Christians and Muslims: Pertient perspectives for religious educators. Religious Education Journal of Australia. 28(1), pp. 30 - 35.
The mother of Jesus figures in the sacred texts of both Christianity and Islam. While the accounts of her differ, these two Abrahamic religions concur in their acknowledgement of Mary/Maryam as a woman of faith. This paper identifies and provides some accessible and relevant background to this woman with the aim of promoting a reflection on the role and significance of the person and symbol of Mary/Maryam and the implications for understanding the place of Jesus in these different religious traditions. Teachers may find this paper particularly useful as background pertinent to inter-faith dialogue and Studies of Religion courses.
