Mary Magdalene was probably Jesus's most prominent female follower.
She is first mentioned in the Gospels when Jesus drives seven demons from her (Luke 8:2 and Mark 16:9). After that, she is mentioned several times in events surrounding Jesus' death at the cross. But most of her was told in apocryphal stories.
