Magdala is a first century town best known today because of one woman – a woman who has fascinated the world for centuries, Mary Magdalene. It seems only appropriate that in the “hometown” of Mary Magdalene women would find a place especially for them.
“I have never seen a place like this for women…” “Thank you for honoring women…” say many of our visitors. The names of some women mentioned in the Gospels are inscribed on columns in our Women’s Atrium and artistic images of women’s hands can be seen in the frescos, mosaics and oil painting of Duc in Altum.
But, Magdala is not just about biblical times…or about artistic images of hands. The woman’s touch is seen, felt and experienced in every part of the Magdala Project. Who are these women? From Chief Archaeologist to Master Artist, Construction Project Manager to Volunteer Coordinator, Director of Magdalena Institute to Marketing and Development Manager, from Key Account Manager to Curator of Duc in Altum, women are an integral part of Magdala today.
Magdala is benefiting from a woman’s touch.
