Mother Theresa

Saint of fraud

Published on: 7 Sep 2016, updated 16 July 2018

Mother Teresa was a Catholic nun who many believe devoted her life to helping India’s poor and she was declared a saint in a canonization Mass held by Pope Francis in the Vatican on September 4 2016.

Because so many actually revere Mother Theresa, it can appear insensitive to fact-check her more odious pronouncements, but any journalist should check the facts and not just be a voice of the establishment as there’s more to this story.

Anjezë Gonxhe Bojaxhiu was born in August 26, 1910 in Skopje which was then part of Kosovo Vilayet in the Ottoman Empire. This was a volatile period and she lived in the shadow of the Mother Teresa

Gospel of Mary

One of the most comon femal names of the period

The Gospel of Mary is found in the Berlin Gnostic Codex (or Papyrus Berolinensis 8502, as this ancient collection of Gnostic texts is labelled for archival reasons). This very important and well-preserved codex was apparently discovered in the late-nineteenth century somewhere near Akhmim in upper Egypt. It was purchased in 1896 by a German scholar, Dr. Carl Reinhardt, in Cairo and then taken to Berlin.

(Pages 1 to 6 of the manuscript, containing chapters 1 – 3, are lost. The extant text starts on page 7…)
