She is sometimes called simply “the Magdalene”… The Bible does not say she was a prostitute. All it mentions of her past is that Jesus had cast seven demons out of her… A 2003 novel and 2006 movie, The Da Vinci Code, popularized a theory that Jesus was married to Mary Magdalene, had children with her, and thus has descendants — and that the church over the centuries has suppressed this truth… Basilicas in Vezelay and Saint-Maximin, France, both claim to house her remains… Mary Magdalene was played by Rooney Mara in the 2018 feature film Mary Magdalene. She was also played by Yvonne Elliman in the original 1971 Broadway cast of Jesus Christ Superstar, the musical written by Andrew Lloyd Webber.
