Was she really a prostitute? Or an unwanted bride by the Christians?
You are in Rome or there about, so you do probably know more than anyone else that Leonardo aint no fool
but rather is a genius; not limited to paintings alone but other fields such as science, medicine, encryption etc
Leonardo's jokes and pranks are well known and widely documented
they dont exclude numerous works and paintings commissioned by the Pope or church
He displayed his dillusionment and disgust of the hypocrisy of the church with treacherous and disguised paintings
He literally took money for the commissions, stuck two fingers up and screvved them all
The church no different to present day Penterascals are more concerned about the outside of the cup than the inside
Pristine, colorful and elegant on the outside but full of grime yuck and muck inside
- we wont delve into Leonardo's dark side
Because there is none. All you have here is conjecture and silly conspiracy theories.
This is absolute nonsense. Rumored to be Mary based exactly on WHAT evidence? First hand accounts of the last supper written by the apostles do NOT record the presence of a woman at the super. So exactly where did you get your "rumor" from?
More absolute bull. Leonardo was not a fool sure but neither was he an eyewitness to the event he purported to draw. Leonardo never at any point claimed he was making a completely accurate representation of history in his drawings.
you dont know anything about him either.
But you didn't answer the question.
In The Last Super, the person sitting beside Jesus, claimed to be John the Baptist, is rumoured to be Mary Magdalene. Pay attention to the feminine features.
Leonardo wasn't a fool for sure. So I just want to know if he was just playing a joke on the Church or he had valid motives to assume Mary Magdalene was so important to Jesus to be represented among the other disciples.
Leave the Da Vinci Code out of this. I am talking about Leonardo da Vinci, and not Dan Brown.
Though the book is a good read and all; speaking for myself
It's beggars belief why most dont notice the below excerpt copied out from the copyright page of Dan Brown's Da Vinci code

the painting of Leonardo Davinci misrepresents the real setting of a traditional jewish passover meal.
-the jews sat around in a circle and not on a linear plan as depicted by the picture
-they reclined at the table.meaning,they leaned on their elbow at the table.but the picture shows a group of people sitting like westerners at a buffet.
-the youngest family member sat in his dad's laps (bosom);which means John (the youngest disciple) sat by jesus's side or like the bible says:he sat in jesus's bosom.it was not a woman but a young man.
-judas sat right next to jesus. judas was definately the most respected disciple by my analysis because:he held the money,he distributed it,and seemed like jesus's confidant.thats why nobody could have suspected him to be the traitor. he sat so close to jesus and the Lord was whispering in his ears.thats why the bible shows us that Peter was having a hard time hearing what jesus was saying,so he had to motion to john to ask the master to say it again. so,peter was not sitting next to jesus as depicted by Leonardo.
just to say that the image presented by Leonardo is a false representation of the real scene.
therefore the Davinci code is just a theory like what Charles Darwin published when he said:man evolved from an ape. if you beleive in the marriage between Jesus and Mary Magdalene, you might as well go ahead and beleive that there are Aliens on some unkown galaxies,or there was a creepy creature 100 million years ago who lived in caves called The Caveman,who is actually your ancestor.
