Mary MagdeleneThere are many references to Mary Magdalene in the sacred writings of the “Bahá’í Faith”where she enjoys an exalted status as a heroine of faith and the “archetypal woman of all cycles”.[78]`Abdu’l-Bahá, the son of the founder of the religion, said that she was “the channel of confirmation” to Jesus’ disciples, a “heroine” who “re-established the faith of the apostles” and was “a light of nearness in his kingdom”.[79] `Abdu’l-Bahá also wrote that “her reality is ever shining from the horizon of Christ”, “her face is shining and beaming forth on the horizon of the universe forevermore” and that “her candle is, in the assemblage of the world, lighted till eternity”.[80] `Abdu’l-Bahá considered her to be the supreme example of how women are completely equal with men in the sight of God and can at times even exceed men in holiness and greatness.[81] Indeed he claimed that she surpassed all the men of her time,[82] and that “crowns studded with the brilliant jewels of guidance” were upon her head.[83]

The Bahá’í writings also expand upon the scarce references to her life in the canonical Gospels, with a wide array of extra-canonical stories about her and sayings which are not recorded in any other extant historical sources. `Abdu’l-Bahá claimed that Mary traveled to Rome and spoke before the Emperor Tiberius, which is presumably why Pilate was later recalled to Rome for his cruel treatment of the Jews (a tradition also attested to in the Eastern Orthodox Church).[84] According to the memoirs of Juliet Thompson, `Abdu’l-Bahá also compared Mary to Juliet, one of his most devoted followers, claiming that she even physically resembled her and that Mary Magdalene was Juliet Thompson’s “correspondence in heaven”.

Bahá’ís have noted parallels between Mary Magdalene and the Babí heroine-poetess Tahirih. The two are similar in many respects, with Mary Magdalene often being viewed as a Christian antecedent of the latter, while Tahirih in her own right could be described as the spiritual return of the Magdalene; especially given their common, shared attributes of “knowledge, steadfastness, courage, virtue and will power”, in addition to their importance within the religious movements of Christianity and the Bahá’í Faith as female leaders.[85]
