The Bible and the Virgin Mary
Did you know? Extract from Hail, Holy Queen by Scott Hahn
The Queen Mother in Chapter 4
“Israel’s monarchy arose in very specific historic circumstances in a
particular geographic region. In the ancient Near East, most nations were
monarchies ruled by a king. In addition, most cultures practiced polygamy; so
a given king often had several wives. This posed problems. First, whom
should the people honor as queen? But more important, whose son should
receive the right of succession to the throne?
In most Near Eastern cultures, these twin problems were resolved by a
single custom. The woman ordinarily honored as queen was not the wife of
the king, but the mother of the king. There was an element of justice to the
practice, since it was often the persuasive (or seductive) power of the mother
that won the throne for her son.”
