The Celluloid Madonna is the first book to analyze the life of the Virgin Mary on screen from the silent era through to the present. For decades, Mary has caught the imagination of filmmakers from a range of religious backgrounds, whether Catholic, Protestant, Muslim, Marxist, or atheist, and film’s intersection of theology and secular culture has inspired some of the most singular and controversial visions of this icon in cinema history. Focusing on the challenge of adapting Scripture to the screen, this volume discusses Cecil B. DeMille’s The King of Kings (1927), Pier Paolo Pasolini’s The Gospel According to St. Matthew (1964), Franco Zeffirelli’s Jesus of Nazareth (1977), Jean-Luc Godard’s Hail Mary (1984), Jean Delannoy’s Mary of Nazareth (1994), Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ (2004), Catherine Hardwicke’s The Nativity Story (2006), and Mark Dornford-May’s Son of Man (2006).
