Two-thousand years ago, a young, Roman princess danced for a lustful king. She was Salome, whose name meant “peace.” But the events which followed her dance were anything but peaceful. Described by history as the epitome of the Whore of Babylon, her later portrayal in plays and movies only served to enhance this image. But what if everything we thought we knew about Salome was a lie? In this slim text, Salome walks out of the mists of time and speaks directly to the modern world about the events surrounding her life.
From the royal palace in Jerusalem, to the deserts of Egypt and beyond—Salome’s journey through the dark night of the soul explores politics, faith, the loss of the soul, and the regaining of the heart.
