May 5th 12.45am-3.30pm Miriamic Procession at the Cathedral of St John the Divine, NYC


1047 Amsterdam Avenue at 112th Street New York, New York 10025 stjohndivine.org 212.316.7490
The Congregation of Saint Saviour presents
The Miriamic Procession
Professors Phyllis Trible, Deirdre Good and Robyn Neville
The Miriamic procession is both auditory and visual. The sound starts with the
glorious song of Miriam who sings the "Song of the Sea" in Exodus 15
celebrating Israel's deliverance with music and dance. The Miriamic
procession continues in the New Testament from Mary, the mother in the birth
stories, through women disciples in Jesus' ministry, to the women at the
empty tomb and at the resurrection. Miriam's song resonates in the Magnificat,
the lament psalms of Pistis Sophia, the Manichaean psalms, Peter Abelard's
Easter sermon, and medieval and baroque music of the east and west. Mary's
role and function as the mother of Jesus advances in the procession from
Christological debates into medieval texts with a particular focus on Mary in
medieval Ireland.
Professor Trible will discuss Exodus 15 and traditions around Miriam
Professor Good will discuss Luke 2, John 20 and traditions around Mary and
Mary Magdalene
Professor Neville will discuss the dynamic narrative history of Mary in the early
and medieval church
