Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the gradual emergence of Marian beliefs. The doctrinal path of Mary in early Christianity is parallel to that of Jesus. Moreover, the gradual promotion of Mary was historically literarily and theologically coordinated and subordinated to that of Jesus. It is obvious that the history of Mary must be understood in the light of any documentation without any intervention authority governing its doctrinal path. Despite many misgivings from some eminently religious communities, Greco-Roman origins of Mariology still deserve to be invoked as a place of investigation and comparison. When studying the trajectory of Mary in terms of its progressive deification, which is performed in Christian circles, one encounters certain prophetic aspects of Mariological developments, as many in the second century that fourth century or later. The representations of Mary, without a doubt, played a major role in the process of the deification of Jesus. The original text of the chapter is in French.

Keywords: Christianity; deification of Jesus; Marian beliefs; Mariological developments; Mary
