'[This book] is designed not just to enrich the Christian image of Mary, but, in several crucial areas, to correct it. From the beginning Mary has played a major role in theology and popular piety. But every period built up its own image of her, so that in each image of Mary we see the reflection of the individual epochs of religious faith.' -- Foreword
