The author of this article presents some ideas about Mary contained in two rather new works. The first one is a lexicon of Mariology. It is a summary of all what took place in this theological field. The second is a small book about the internal relation between God and Mary and its consequences for the human life. It is the work of prof. Pospisil 'Mary - the maternal face of God'. These works are quite new, both in Czech theology and in theology in general. Marienlexicon with its 4300 pages brings together almost everything the present Mariology offers from its treasures. Prof. Pospisil's book, on the other hand, integrates certain individual ideas into the overall field of Mariology. While the authors of the lexicon think about Mary in relationship to the individual persons of the Trinity, prof. Pospisil explores her relationship to the Immanent Trinity. He presents Mariology as a necessary addition to Christology and as a challenge to discover life in its fullness.
