Another speculation goes that his great uncle, Joseph of Aramathea, reputed as one of the first Christian missionaries to Britain and the founder of what became Glastonbury Abbey, might conceivably have taken the young Jesus up North for vacation. It is the "prequel" to The Passion of Mary Magdalen , a feminist, as well as very funny, Gospel retelling in which the titular heroine, a holy whore in the service of goddess worship, loves Jesus both spiritually and in the carnal sense, adding an heretical dimension to what it might mean to be a child of God.
Fundamentalists who have not stopped reading at this point will find little consolation that the two do get married and don't merely live in sin. In Cunningham's view, the concept of sin promulgated by the organized church is nothing Jesus would have condemned, which is presumably the conceit of the final volume of the Maeve Chronicles , Bright Dark Madonna , due out later this year. To further piss off the pious, Cunningham posits Mary Magdalen as a Celt supposedly fathered by a sea god and raised by eight warrior witches on a magic isle.
Upon reaching sexual maturity, she is dispatched to a Druid college where she meets the teenaged carpenter's son, referred to here as Esus. She takes the name of Maeve, which means mead, from that of Queen Maeve also spelt Medb of Connacht -- a warrior famous for her skill both on the battlefield and the bed sheets. In Celtic lore, she is a figure of the intoxicating power of passion. Cunningham's Maeve certainly lives up to her namesake, though that is played out more in the second volume of the series.
Magdalen Rising is a coming of age story, prefiguring not only the events of The Passion of Mary Magdalen , but also the Gospels, in particular the crucifixion.

Here, Maeve and Esus are strong-headed adolescents, whose bluster barely manages to conceal their own insecurities and doubts. Despite their supernatural heritage, Maeve and Esus are decidedly human characters. Nor is this a one-sided matriarchal mythos to replace the standard patriarchal version. Rather, this is a depiction of equals. Maeve and Esus help shape each other's personalities; but they also must separate from one another to fully realize "who they are.
Some may find them too human, and not just from an orthodox religious perspective. The story is narrated by Maeve, whose voice is not only decidedly contemporary, but something of a wise ass. For example, here's how Maeve describes the onset of puberty: Growing pains, my mothers had explained the aching to me.
How big would they get, I wondered. They already overflowed my palms. And when would I bleed? My mother's stock answer "all in good time" was worse than no answer at all.
