Reflections on Mary

(p.149) Chapter 4 Reflections on Mary
Christians, Muslims and Jesus

Mona Siddiqui

Yale University Press

This chapter explores the role of Mary, as perceived by both the Christians and the Muslims. It explains that while Jesus remained at the center of most of the polemical as well as irenic discussion between Christians and Muslims, Mary remains to be often featured as a conciliatory figure between the two religions. It adds that Mary's womanhood and femininity, as well as her pious devotion, became a subject of great theological speculation in both religions.
