088: The Biblical and Historical Mary (w/ William Albrecht and Father Christiaan Kappes)

088: The Biblical and Historical Mary (w/ William Albrecht and Father Christiaan Kappes) December 2, 2020

In this episode of The Cordial Catholic Podcast, I’m joined by William Albrecht and Father Christiaan Kappes to discuss Mary in the Scriptures and through the eyes of the Early Christians.

We dig into the idea of Mary as the New Ark, Mary’s perpetual virginity, and how the Early Christians saw and understood the role of Mary – and how they read their Bibles accordingly.

This is a truly groundbreaking episode, and a great introduction to how Catholics understand (and have always understood!) Mary!
