Panoramic Perspectives from Archaeology, Scripture and Historical Traditions

Speaker: Jennifer Ristine, consecrated woman of Regnum Christi

Jennifer Ristine has been living and serving at the recently excavated site of ancient Magdala in the Holy Land since 2014.  She has served in Magdala as the Visitors’ Center Coordinator and Director of the Magdalena Institute.   The shared research and reflections she offers is the fruit of questions from countless visitors: Christian pilgrims, Jewish visitors, and even people from different faith or no-faith backgrounds.  She gives context to the first century ambience of Magdala by presenting some of the archaeological discoveries since the 1970’s up to the present day.   As a consecrated woman in the Catholic Church, she also connects scriptural texts to theological and spiritual reflections, enticing the gospel imagination to bring alive the encounter between Jesus and Mary Magdalene.  Finally, she offers a creative response to the multitude of historical traditions and theories that have developed over the centuries.
