Jean Hani’s The Black Virgin: A Marian Mystery differs from his previous writings through its sharper theological focus. In Hani’s view, the key to the enigma of the Black Virgin was given at Lourdes by Mary herself: in declaring herself the Immaculate Conception, she initiated us into the Marian Mystery in all its profundity. And it is precisely through an apprehension of the Mystery as a whole that the ultimate meaning of the Black Virgin can be grasped. Chapters include: The Black Icon — Regina Mundi —The Mother of God — “I am Black but Beautiful” — Woman.
