 Our Description

In this classic text in the field of Marian scholarship, Hilda Graef provides a look at the place of Mary in the Church, and a chronological overview of the history of Marian studies. This revised and updated edition of Mary: A History of Doctrine and Devotion now features an extended final chapter and new introduction by Thomas A. Thompson, S.M., director of the Marian Library at the University of Dayton. This book is a must-have reference resource for Marian scholars and for lay readers curious about Mary's place in scripture and Church history.

Hilda Graef was a German of Jewish and Protestant ancestry who found her way into the Catholic Church as a young adult through the writings of Thomas Aquinas, St. John of the Cross, and G.K. Chesterton. During World War II, Graef fled to London in order to escape the threat of the Nazis. While in London, she wrote from an attic home that she described as "frequently shaken by bombs." Graef later moved to Oxford and worked as assistant to the editor of the Lexicon of Patristic Greek. She authored many books, including The Way of the Mystics and the first biography of Edith Stein.
