The Gospel of Mary : beyond a gnostic and a biblical Mary Magdalene by Esther de Boer( )

22 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 1,549 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Gospel of Mary, the only known gospel that is named after a woman, has aroused new interest in the figure of Mary Magdalene and the beginnings of Christianity. This book examines the Gospel of Mary to discover what it reveals about Mary Magdalene and to determine the origin of its portrayal, It proposes a new perspective on matter and nature in the Gospel of Mary, suggesting that it is not to be categorized as a gnostic writing. Furthermore, the study argues that Mary's teaching in the Gospel of Mary is more closely related to the writings of Philo, the letters of Paul and the Gospel of John than to the Nag Hammadi Codices. As such, the Gospel of Mary and its portrayal of Mary Magdalene cannot be seen as evidence of a specific gnostic esteem for Mary Magdalene, but rather demonstrates the esteem of believers belonging to a broader Christian context

7 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 839 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mary Magdalene : beyond the myth by Esther de Boer( Book )

24 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 444 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Much has been written about Mary Magdalene over the years, mostly about who she was not. Who really was Mary Magdalene?" "The living woman behind the image is still too little known, and Esther de Boer here attempts to fill this gap. Examining not only the Gospel texts and texts from the church fathers, but also texts discovered in the Egyptian desert during the last century that were not contained in the church's tradition (not the least of which is the Gospel of Mary), de Boer presents a vivid, fascinating, and attractive picture of Mary of Magdala - disciple, apostle, and human being."--Jacket
The Mary Magdalene cover-up : the sources behind the myth by Esther de Boer( Book )

10 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and Dutch and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mary Magdalene has always been the subject of both popular and scholarly intrigue. Was she the wife of Jesus, his complete initiate, a goddess or a priestess? Did the church dramatically alter her image to deny her importance? These questions have inspired representations of her in art, film and literature, from Caravaggio to The Last Temptation of Christ and The Da Vinci Code. The Mary Magdalene Cover-up is the first book to bring the original sources that have informed our current-day view of Mary to a wider audience. Esther de Boer has brought together an impressive array of texts from the first century, when Mary Magdalene was alive, to the sixth century, when her image as a penitent sinner was invented. Each text is accompanied by a commentary by the author, placing it in its historical context

1 edition published in 2006 in Spanish and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents the first Spanish translation of the most ancient and trustworthy texts which shed light on the mystery of Mary Magdalene. These texts reveal her importance as a beloved disciple of Jesus, as well as apostle and evangelist in her own right. They also reveal a vibrant oral tradition in which Mary Magdalen is not only a follower of Jesus, but his companion and closest disciple, a figure whose relevance to Christianity is just beginning to emerge from the shadows of history

Fluorescence imaging to localize head and neck squamous cell carcinoma for enhanced pathological assessment( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: Accurately identifying close or positive margins in real-time permits re-excision during surgical procedures. Intraoperative assessment of margins via gross examination and frozen section is a widely used tool to assist the surgeon in achieving complete resection. While this methodology permits diagnosis of freshly resected tissue, the process is fraught with misinterpretation and sampling errors. During fluorescence-guided surgery, an exogenous fluorescent agent specific for the target disease is imaged in order to navigate the surgical excision. As this technique quickly advances into the clinic, we hypothesize that the disease-specific fluorescence inherently contained within the resected tissues can be used to guide histopathological assessment. To evaluate the feasibility of fluorescence-guided pathology, we evaluated head and neck squamous cell carcinoma tumour specimens and margins resected from animals and patients after systemic injection of cetuximab-IRDye800CW. In a preclinical model of luciferase-positive tumour resection using bioluminescence as the gold standard, fluorescence assessment determined by closed-field fluorescence imaging of fresh resected margins accurately predicted the presence of disease in 33/39 positive margins yielding an overall sensitivity of 85%, specificity of 95%, positive predictive value (PPV) of 94%, and a negative predictive value (NPV) of 87%, which was superior to both surgical assessment (54%, 61%, 57%, and 58%) and pathological assessment (49%, 95%, 91%, and 66%), respectively. When the power of the technique was evaluated using human-derived tumour tissues, as little as 0.5mg (1mm 3) of tumour tissue was identified (tumour-to-background-ratio:5.2). When the sensitivity/specificity of fluorescence-guided pathology was determined using traditional histological assessment as the gold standard in human tissues obtained during fluorescence-guided surgery, the technique was highly accurate with a sensitivity of 91%, specificity of 85%, PPV of 81%, and NPV of 93% for 90 human-derived samples. This approach can be used as a companion to the pathologist, eliminating confounding factors while impacting surgical intervention and patient management
Antibody Based Surgical Imaging and Photodynamic Therapy for Cancer by Esther de Boer( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In 1944 Albert Coons was the first to show that a fluorescent molecule could be conjugated directly to an antibody made against a target site of interest. This binding does not affect antibody specificity so that labeled antibodies can be used to visualize the location and distribution of the target site of interest. Several years did passed by before Ballou B et al. (Cancer Detect Prev, 1998) was the first to report on in vivo imaging of tumor specific receptors with antibodies conjugated with near infrared dyes. As the portfolio of antibodies used for immunotherapy is rapidly expanding, there is a parallel opportunity to advance antibody-based imaging and antibody-based theranostics techniques to assist surgical treatment. However, in current clinical practice the number of FDA- and EMA approved probes for human medical applications is still limited and does not meet the need for the wide range of diseases that could benefit from fluorescent antibody-based treatment strategies. This dissertation presents the systemic evaluation of repurposed therapeutic antibodies for antibody-based imaging (section I of this thesis) and an antibody-based theranostic approach (section II of this thesis) to assist surgical treatment
The Gospels of Mary : the secret tradition of Mary Magdalene, the companion of Jesus by Marvin W Meyer( Recording )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

[This book] presents English translations of [early] texts that shed light on Mary Magdalene ... These texts unveil her importance as Jesus' beloved disciple and an apostle and evangelist in her own right, a figure whose importance for Christianity is only now emerging from the shadows of history. Included are selections from the New Testament Gospels and from the Gnostic Gospels and other texts, including the Gospel of Mary, the Gospel of Thomas, and the Gospel of Philip. Esther de Boer ... analyzes the role Mary plays in each of the gospels in which she appears, showing her to be a capable, strong woman who poses a distinct threat to the male-dominated early Church. [The author contends that the] texts [presented in this book] reveal a vibrant oral tradition in which Mary Magdalene is not only a follower of Jesus but his companion and closest disciple.-Dust jacket
