Welcome to In Search Of, a podcast where we go in search of voices and perspectives that inform and expand a life of faith. In this episode, we dive into Amy’s search for Mary of Egypt, which is the subject of her book Wild Woman. Today Amy is speaking with Jordanian archeologist Mohamed Waheeb about his excavation of the Palace of the Lady, a site described in Wild Woman. Join us as Waheeb weighs in on whether or not St. Mary was a real person and describes his discoveries at the site of Mary of Egypt.

Mohammad Waheeb is a professor of archaeology at Hashemite University in Jordan and has published more than 50 books and 200 articles on the archaeology of Jordan.
