Mary of Rome

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Paul the Apostle's Epistle to the Romans (16:6) mentions a Mary. She is said to have treated Paul with special kindness, and to have "laboured much among" the early Christian community.

Although it has been conjectured that she is the same person as the Mary mother of John Mark[citation needed], this is generally considered to be unproven[citation needed]. Most traditions hold that there is nothing more known about her.[1]
