Survey of Recent Mariology
May 100 Years Ago
A century ago, a Marienkalender (Marian Almanac, Regensburg, Germany) was published. Over 200 pages were devoted to articles, pilgrimages, and things Marian in general. Mary Page editors found the cover and images of the hundred-year-old journal to be of special interest in this year dedicated, at the turn of the millennium, to the Trinity. Note the trinitarian image for the coronation of Mary. Note also how Mary presents her Divine Child, who teaches the small group of devoted listeners. Note the pilgrimage procession and the many symbols of Marian flowers. The script banners read: "The angels rejoice and praise her name."

In Memoriam: Rev. Frederick M. Jelly, OP, Professor at the International Marian Research Institute
Fr. Fred Jelly, long a professor during the summer program of the International Marian Research Institute, passed away on Friday, April 14, 2000. Fr. Jelly had suffered a collapse in May 1999 from which he recuperated and was able to return to his position and teaching and priestly formation during the second semester of the academic year at Mt. St. Mary's Seminary in Emmitsburg, Maryland. He had even made plans to travel to Dayton during the Easter break to discuss future projects.
Fr. Jelly was internationally known for his writings, ecumenical involvement, audio recordings, teaching, and speaking engagements in marian theological studies. In 1998, he received an honor dating back to the early days of the Dominican Order. The honor is entitled, Master of Sacred Theology (S.T.M.), and is awarded to those Dominicans who have rendered special service to the Church by their scholarly defense and promoting of our Catholic faith. Fr. Jelly was awarded the honor mainly for his work in mariology.
Mary and the Easter Season
The Person of Mary Historical character (historical versus symbol)
The Mary Page theme for this news brief about the Blessed Mother is culled from magisterial documents since Vatican II. The theme will covers various aspects of Mary's personhood. Mary is a real, historical person who lived in Nazareth 2000.
An example from magisterial writings below is derived from the document, Mary in Intellectual and Spiritual Formation:
[We note the necessity] of drawing out the relevance of the human reality of the Virgin to people in our own time, stressing the fact that she is an historical person, a human Jewish girl 15
