Work in Progress

The Sign of the Cross
The Joy of All Who Sorrow


My current research deals with representations of Mary, the mother of Jesus.  The unusual circumstances surrounding the birth of Jesus are generally known, and a number of psychological studies of the "virgin mother" have already been made.  Many ways of representing Mary in the long history of Christianity have not received psychological or psychoanalytic scrutiny, however.  Here I have offered some selections from work in progress on Mary, and some of you who visited this site made scholarly comments.  I thank you for your suggestions, and if you have further ideas you would like to share, feel free to contact me at: darancourlaferriere@comcast.net
