All Things Marian

The Answers in this section concern the Blessed Virgin Mary, the division of dogmatic theology called Mariology. It encompasses the role of Mary in the sources of the Faith (Divine Revelation, composed of Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition), the decisions of the Magisterium (which necessarily depend on, and flow from, that Divine Revelation), as well as the contemplation of theologians seeking to deepen the Church's understanding of the Blessed Virgin.  

This Answer section contains, therefore, matters related to both Marian doctrine and theology. It also includes practical questions related to devotions and apparitions, whose authenticity the Church judges according to Catholic teaching, and other longstanding criteria.
