Leave My Robe Alone

Leave My Robe Alone December 31, 2014


A recent article on Simcha Jacobovici’s The Lost Gospel included Titian’s painting “Noli me Tangere,” which is in the public domain.  I had seen the painting before, but the poses of the two figures never struck me in quite the way they did when I saw it connected with Jacobovici’s conspiracy theory about Jesus and Mary Magdalene being married. And so it seemed appropriate to add a caption to it.

For a more reverent interpretation of the pose, you can read Jonathan Jones’ thoughts in The Guardian. And for the question of whether Jesus was walking around naked after the resurrection, see James Tabor’s recent blog post.
