Mariya Magdalena. Anthony Frederic Augustus Sandys. 1858 - 60. Samuel and Mary R. Bancroft Memorial, Delaware Art Museum. [below] The anointment and visitation of the myrrh-bearers. Artist unknown. Ingeborg Psalter. ca. 13th Century. In Greek Orthodox and Greek-Catholic Churches the second Sunday after Easter is the
Feast of the Holy Myrrh-bearers [or the Sunday of the Myrrh-bearing Women].Traditional lists of the myrrh-bearers focus on eight women: Mary, the mother of Christ; Mary Magdalene; Mary and Martha, the sisters of Lazarus; Salome; Susanna; Mary, the wife of Clopas; and Joanna.
Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils. And she went and told them that had been with him, as they mourned and wept. And they, when they had heard that he was alive, and had been seen of her, believed not.
