Christ Appearing to Mary Magdalene in the Garden, (painting)
Baroccio (copy after)
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 18
Copy from Baroccio, at Florence. There is no more striking instance of man's devotion contained in scriptures than that of Mary Magdalene For Christ--out of whom he cast seven devils. While she was yet a sinner, she bathed his feet with tears, wiped them with the hairs of her head, and annointed them with oil. She was one of the number who followed him from Galilee to Jerusalem to minister unto him. At his burial, she and the other Mary were sitting 'over against the Sepulchure,' chief mourners on that sad occasion. We find her amongst the first to visit the Sepulchure "in the end of the Sabbath as it began to dawn toward the First Day of the Week," or, in other words, on the morning of the Resurrection,--having taken with her sweet spices, that she might annoint Him. . . .
