Abstract :
In the Dies irae, our first thought, when reading Mariam without a toponymic agnomen, will be of the mater Dei and not of the in civitate peccatrix (Luke 7.37). The authorities of the Roman church certainly think so, for, as part of their reforms to the liturgy, they have rewritten the line Qui Mariam absolvisti into Peccatricem qui solvisti.

Hypothèsessur l’identification originelle du personnage visé par l’expression Qui Mariam absolvisti dans le Dies irae.
