Catholics, Orthodox Christians and Muslims consider her as a central figure in the journey of faith. Thousands of shrines have been built in her name in the four corners of the world. Young Jewish girl visited by an angel announcing that she'll conceive and give birth to a divine being; mother struck by such terrible fate of witnessing the death of her own creature after atrocious sufferings. Conceived without sin, ascended into Heaven with her whole body at time of death. A life marked by wonders and unexplainable events that even today continue to take place, with apparitions and miracles related to her all over the world.

But what do we really know about Jesus' mother? Are there concrete historical proofs of her existence? When and how was the Marian cult born?

In this thrilling investigation, through the analysis of the historical and literary sources and the archaeological finds, along with theological studies and dogmas of faith, we will explore the immense, fascinating universe that surrounds the incredible figure of Mary of Nazareth.
