The Deification of the Virgin Mary in Christianity

The Deification of the Virgin Mary in Christianity

Many claim that the Virgin Mary has never been deified. This claim seems to originate from the entrenched fear that the Holy Virgin is being offered the kind of worship that should be reserved for God alone. However, a close examination of Scripture and the writings of the Early Fathers of the universal Church shows that, contrary to popular opinion and the present conceptualization of Christianity, especially in the Western Church, the Virgin Mary is deified, was deified at her conception, and has always remained deified. The Deification of the Virgin Mary in Christianity is available in ebook edition from the usual outlets and from the publishers.
