Antonio CANOVA (1757 – 1822)<br/><i>Psyche Revived by Cupid’s Kiss</i><br/>Front view (detail)<br/>Marble - H. 1.55 m; L. 1.68 m; D. 1.01 m<br/>MR 1777<br/>Paris, Musée du Louvre

‘As for the Wisdom who is called ‘the barren’, she is the mother of the angels.

And the companion of [the saviour was Mar]y Ma[gda]lene. [Christ loved] M[ary] more than [all] the disci[ples, and used to] kiss her [softly] on her [ . . . . ].

The rest of the disciples were offended by it and expressed disapproval. They said to him “Why do you love her more than all of us?” The Saviour answered and said to them, “Why do I not love you like her?

When a blind man and one who sees are both together in darkness, they are no different from one another. When the light comes, then he who sees will see the light, and he who is blind will remain in darkness.’

    Therefore they all should Love her as He Loved her, if they were not blind but could see the light they too would have Loved her in her wisdom, and He would have Loved them the same for theirs x

    When a blind man (disciple) and one who sees (Jesus) are both together in darkness, they are no different from one another. When the light comes (Magdalene), then he who sees (Jesus) will see the light, and he who is blind (the disciples) will remain in darkness.’
